A Helping Hand for a Green Back to School

A special "Helping Hand for Education" fund is being launched in Grenoble, Green Capital of Europe, at the start of the new school year. The aim is to help finance educational projects that contribute to raising young people's awareness of the challenges of the ecological transition in the schools and colleges of the Isère Department. An initiative whose relevance was confirmed in the summer of 2022, with its share of disasters linked to global warming.

"I would like to congratulate Grenoble for winning the title of European Green Capital 2022.

A city that is fair, equitable, healthy and accessible to all."

Susan Brown , Mayor of Oxford, England

"The main thing is to change our food and farming model today. It is disastrous both for animals and for the environment. The key is to design together a fairer world for all, including animals."

Brigitte Gothière , Cofounder of the L214 association

"From 2022 onwards, our two cities will both have held the title of “European Green Capital”. It is a reward both our cities can be proud of. It is also proof that the transition is working and, what is more, at the European level. The title of European Green Capital is also a promise for the future to continue developing the green transition and finding smart solutions."

Thomas Kufen , Mayor of Essen

"The current pandemic has served to highlight certain contradictions in our system and in our economic organisation, such as climate change and inequality. We must value more what is really important: people, life, health and public services. [...] Grenoble is an example and a reference when it comes to what a committed city should be."

Ada Colau , Mayor of Barcelona
