Consultation with Stakeholders
The citizen and sector coalitions will help the project team examine barriers that might prevent successful solution implementation. Together we will design instruments and strategies to remove the identified barriers and support the implementers of those solutions to scale them more rapidly (i.e. through taxes, subsidies, trainings, laws and policies, nudging strategies, targeted communication campaigns, etc.).
37 million tons
A full panel of solutions will be designed to reduce CO2 emissions in Switzerland and push back down the temperature by 1.5°C (Scenario 1) or even 2°C (Scenario 2)
At the center of the interconnection between research, consultation and engagement, the Swiss Climate Drawdown initiative turns science theory into practice.
Total CO2 eq. emissions per year (2019)
Include Citizens Voices
Switzerland is warming twice as fast as the rest of the world with consequences seen across the local economy, the natural environment, and the physical and mental health of citizens. Existing efforts to mitigate climate change have not adequately incorporated citizen input, or addressed citizen’s fears and the barriers preventing acceptance and implementation across societal sector
Per capita CO2 eq. emissions per year (2019)
Creation od a multi-chanel platform (i.e website, online community, survey tools, social media). This will enable citizens to participate in deciding what solutions are relevant and acceptable for them
"A solution is only a solution if it gets adopted" - Sarah Perreard, stakeholder engagement lead at EA
Amass and deploy of resources and expertise to identify and implement science-based climate change solutions in Switzerland.
These will are developed in collaboration with stakeholders in each sector and citizens.
Creation coalitions of public and private sector members to represent their groups’ interests and to define an acceptability rating system with a strategy and tools for collecting input about acceptability proposed solutions
Through social medias, campaigns and trainings we aim at keeping everyone active and engaged. Climate change is everyone's problem, therefore the solutions as well should belong to all!
A scientist - led effort will examine an extensive list of possible solutions and create scenarios that will undergo consideration by stakeholders across all key sectors
Acceptability Rating Plan
A tight collaboration between the scientific team and the network of stakeholders and citizens...
A team of scientists and sustainability experts will lead the project ensuring scientific rigor is at the basis but that pragmatic solutions are found therefore real impact will be guaranteed.
