Assessment report

Six months after the end of this extraordinary year, and in line with the commitments made to the European Commission, it's time to present an initial assessment.

Participatory evaluation

This evaluation was co-sponsored by the three local authorities (City, Grenoble-Alpes-Métropole, Isère Department). It involved interviews, questionnaires and workshops with a panel of residents, event organisers and challenge partners (associations, businesses, public institutions), as well as staff and elected representatives from the local authorities and the Grenoble European Green Capital 2022 Agency.

Food for thought

In the first part, the report attempts to draw up a factual assessment of what happened in 2022, presenting the positive elements, the successes, as well as the stumbling blocks, difficulties and failures encountered during the year. The aim was to draw useful lessons for the region as well as for the European Commission and future European Green Capitals, on the follow-up to be given in terms of mechanisms and tools to support individual and collective change, and in terms of partnership dynamics.

A month-by-month review

In the second part, the report presents the year month by month, corresponding to the twelve themes of the environmental and social transition. Based on an overview of the dynamics underway in the region and the major issues, it shows how the 2022 actions have responded to them, and illustrates a number of challenges and events.

Updating the socio-environmental indicators for each theme makes it possible to objectivise the current trajectories and to set a milestone, with a view to the +5 year assessment requested by the European Commission: its purpose will be, with the necessary hindsight, to better identify how 2022 may have been a moment of amplification and acceleration of the transition.
