Working towards a Europe of dynamic, resilient communities with a net zero carbon footprint.

ECOLISE’s vision is of a Europe where the members of every local community have taken a lead role in ensuring local economic, social and environmental sustainability. Through their actions, they have achieved a net zero carbon footprint and in so doing have made a major contribution to the establishment of a post-carbon, ecological society in Europe.

To support its member organisations in achieving this vision, the mission of ECOLISE is to be a shared platform for learning, action and advocacy of community-based initiatives on climate change and sustainability in Europe.

Through its activities, ECOLISE seeks to raise the profile of community-based action on climate change and sustainability in Europe, to facilitate exchange, cooperation and knowledge development and sharing among stakeholders across Europe, and to strengthen the collective influence of its members in EU policy making.
