The Alliance is looking first and foremost for practical examples such as energy savings and the efficient use of locally available energy sources, heat insulation or electricity from renewable energy sources within a region. Measures such as these not only protect the climate, they also create jobs and keep the money for energy costs in the region. The "Short Track to Climate Protection" also includes urban planning and the reshaping of the urban environment, which combines living, working, shopping and leisure activities and also prioritises cycling, walking and the use of buses as the preferred means of transport. The theme also refers to goods that are produced and marketed within the region and to the short distances between the municipality and its citizens whenever sustainable solutions are developed and implemented together.
The closing date for applications for the Climate Star is 15 June 2009.
