The Metropolis of Lyon and all the signatories of the climate plan are committed to limiting the effects of global warming in our agglomeration. They will meet soon for a progress report on the work carried out, on the occasion of the 7th climate energy conference. In the meantime, the editorial staff of the MET’ presents the actions carried out by these actors within the framework of the territorial climate, air and energy plan.

On April 4, it’s the 7th climate energy conference. This event brings together all the actors of the territory mobilized to implement the territorial climate air energy plan (PCAET): the Metropolis of Lyon, municipalities, institutional partners, industrialists and associations. This is the time for the Métropole and its partners to take stock of the work carried out to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt the territory to global warming.

The territorial air-energy climate plan translates into very concrete actions:

1. Composting at the Collonges-au-Mont d’Or canteen

Since the end of 2018, the Collonges-au-Mont d’Or school restaurant has been sorting and composting meal preparation waste and leftover plates (300 meals a day) with the help of the students. Objectives: raise students’ awareness of the fight against food waste, understand the composting process and take part in a fun outdoor activity. The compost produced is used in communal plantations or given to schoolchildren.

2. Management of energy consumption at the universities of Lyon

The University of Lyon, whose assets represent 1.4 million square meters spread over 500 buildings, has 9 flow economizers. Objectives: to reduce the energy consumption of university buildings, by regulating technical equipment, carrying out quick-win energy-saving work, setting up monitoring tools and encouraging users to sobriety.

3. Citizen renewable energies with Toits en transition and Coopawatts

The Toits en transition and Coopawatt associations contribute to developing citizen energy, by supporting local participatory initiatives, in particular for solar power plant projects on the roofs of buildings. Objective: Multiply local citizen project groups, and thus make the territory more resilient to the challenges of climate change and its energy impacts.

Back to the climate fortnight

The Metropolis of Lyon organized a series of workshops and conferences for the general public from January 17 to 28, 2022: the climate fortnight. These events have given everyone the keys to fight climate change at their level or to act for ecological transition. The workshops were organized around 3 themes: Engage your organization in a transition process; Discover and test innovative tools; Act in your daily life for the climate.

800 participants followed the 16 webinars organized during the climate fortnight. They discovered tools, identified key players in the region, with whom they were able to discuss and project themselves into concrete actions in favor of energy and climate transition.

The Metropolis of Lyon thanks the participants and remains attentive to suggestions to offer even more dynamic, interactive workshops, adapted to each level.
