Supporters of a clean air, zero carbon transition

Like ClairCity, you are working to accelerated the transition before time runs out. You work in the fields of health or sustainable urban development and are already doing great work! If this sounds like you, then keep reading…

We have developed a process that may help your organisation further improve your city/region.

Beginning in 2016, ClairCity engaged citizens across Europe to better understand environmental behaviours in their local contexts. We were curious to know how they travelled, how they heated their homes and their future aspirations. Were citizens interested in adopting greener lifestyles? And if so, how would this affect carbon emissions and air pollution by 2030 and 2050. Importantly, would their involvement in decision making processes accelerate the transition to a clean air, zero carbon futures.

Our engagement process consisted of three parts. First, we established a baseline of behaviours in each of our partner cities and regions and explored the policy and governance landscape to understand how this impacts on citizens behaviours. Second, we engaged citizens in various creative ways and used cutting-edge modelling to understand what happens to air quality and carbon emissions when their suggestions are incorporated into decision making. Third, we fed back this knowledge to policy makers, citizens and influential organisations in each city and region.

Become an associate

We are connected to associate organisations and cities which observed and informed our project development, and we hope to continue these relationships after the project ends.

In order to extend the impact of the project, disseminate the outcomes and embed knowledge exchange as a core principle, we actively seek to engage with other cities and organisations (companies/institutions/NGOs/etc.) to become ClairCity Associates. We want to create a project community to share our ideas and results, and to learn as much as possible from other initiatives across the globe.

We offer ClairCity Associates:
• Preferential access to our research information before official publication;
• The opportunity to actively request information about ClairCity developments from us;
• Networking with other cities and project partners;
• Priority invitations to ClairCity annual meetings and other events.

Information exchange is limited to non-sensitive reports and on a voluntary basis only.

In return, we hope that ClairCity Associates:
• Actively disseminate ClairCity project outcomes through their networks;
• Enhance the project impact by broadening its reach through their networks and activities; and
• Actively participate in knowledge exchange and mutual learning with the ClairCity partners to enhance our project’s objectives and outputs with us.


There is no cost to becoming a ClairCity Associate. Associate status does not make organisations eligible to access the project funding.

If your city or institution is interested in finding out more about being a ClairCity Associate, please use the contact form to contact us and we will send you more information.
