14. Why is the project taking place?Cities play a crucial role in implementing international agreements such as the Paris agreement and the Agenda 2030. This is exactly the point where the project starts. Without the local participation and responsibility, the goals set out in the Agenda 2030 cannot be filled with life. Based on this view, the project strengthens the role of local authorities in localising and implementing the SDGs. Additionally, citizens will get effectively involved in activities around the SDGs. ....

23. Main achievement of the project to-dateThe action builds on the experience of former DEAR projects. Successful activities, e.g. the campaign “A good life is simple”, will be further developed within the project. Until now, more than 150 municipalities participated in the campaign. New topics and further translations will be developed until October 2018, the materials can be downloaded free of charge at the project website: overdeveloped.eu/en/downloads. Beside the information campaign, the project team develops an online tool for cities and citizens to rethink own consumption patterns (competition). Another major result is the cooperation with indigenous partners of the Amazon region and the exchange on energy related questions (e.g. fair on RES in Brazil, delegations to Europe).
