The Community Catalysts project was created by a network of local and international activists, with the intention of contributing to the global transition from the old paradigm to the new.
The consortium aims to contribute to the global shift toward the development and the practice of a new Syntagma, the emerging structure of a new paradigm. Our main goal is to catalyze the transition to territorial communities and municipalities, as they are the catalyzers that lead the paradigm shift.
European society is demanding a greater voice in decision-making in order to ensure greater equity and prosperity in their communities and to contribute to a more biodiverse and healthy environment. Some municipalities are responding to this demand by facilitating citizen participation processes and promoting localised sustainability projects. In spite of these initiatives, local actors are facing a series of challenges for developing and implementing appropriate and cost-effective public policies and projects to support resource-efficient low-carbon and climate-resilient European societies.
