2. Über die Klimacommunity Stuttgart

Um die Klimaziele der Bundesregierung zu erreichen, ist es notwendig, die Dekarbonisierung voranzutreiben und den Ausstoß von Treibhausgasen zu verringern.

Nur durch ein gemeinsames Handeln aller gesellschaftlichen Akteure – Politik, Verwaltung, Wirtschaft, Bürger*innen – sind diese Ziele erreichbar. 

Jede und jeder von uns kann etwas beitragen – von kleinen Schritten im Alltag bis zu Stadt(teil)initiativen. Alle an einem Strang – dafür gründen wir die Stuttgarter Klimacommunity. Diese Plattform bietet aus einer Hand:

  • Tipps und Tricks für den klimafreundlichen Alltag von Klimaschutz-Profis und ehrenamtlichen Expert*innen 

  • Informationen zu erfolgreichen Projekten rundum den Stuttgarter Klimaschutz 

  • Spannende Challenges und Denkanstöße  

  • Eine lebhafte Online-Community, in der ihr eure guten Ideen teilen sowie Tipps und Tricks austauschen könnt 

  • Einen Antragsassistenten für öffentliche Förderungen, mit dem man sich nicht nur informieren, sondern mit wenigen Klicks digital Anträge stellen kann 

  • Eine Umgebung zum einfachen Start und zum Management eigener Klimaschutz-Projekte und Initiativen 


Für Bürger*innen 

Dabei sein können alle, denen der Klimaschutz am Herzen liegt, die sich mit anderen zum Thema Klimaschutz austauschen oder eigene Erfahrungen teilen wollen. Erforderlich ist lediglich eine kostenlose Registrierung auf der Plattform.


Für Unternehmen 

Für den dauerhaften Betrieb benötigt die Community eine sichere finanzielle Grundlage. Der Betreiberverein bietet Unternehmen, die sich im Klimaschutz engagieren wollen, die Möglichkeit einer Fördermitgliedschaft. 

Der Mitgliedsbeitrag richtet sich nach der Größe des Unternehmens. Fördermitglieder haben die Möglichkeit, Leistungen, mit denen sie einen Beitrag zum Klimaschutz leisten, auf der Plattform vorzustellen. 



Du hast vertiefte Kenntnisse in einem für den Klimaschutz relevanten Bereich und willst dich einbringen? Dann werde Pate/-in für dein Thema, moderiere in der Community und erstelle wertvollen Content für die Plattform. Paten/-innen überprüfen Beiträge auf die Einhaltung der Community-Regeln sowie auf sachliche Richtigkeit und suchen bei Meinungsverschiedenheit den Austausch mit den Beteiligten.
