How do you want to be involved in the Gelderland Climate Plan?

Until 15 November 09.00 hours, residents of Gelderland can convey how they want to be involved in updating the Gelderland Climate Plan. The questions are part of the broader question about how residents want to be involved in drawing up the provincial energy policies in Gelderland. Kieskompas carries out the studies on behalf of the province. The complete questionnaire can be found via www.gelderland.nl/hoegaathet

Veranderen kan en moet
De klimaatverandering heeft grote gevolgen voor onze leefomgeving en onze gezondheid. Daarom dat we internationaal afspraken maken zodat we de opwarming van de aarde beperken tot het aanvaardbare. Dat is niet gemakkelijk, gaat tientallen jaren duren én raakt onze gehele manier van leven. We gaan anders wonen, reizen, eten, recreëren. De vertaling van de nationale klimaatdoelen naar regionale schaal heeft de provincie gedaan in het Gelders Klimaatplan. Dit is opgesteld in samenspraak met diverse organisaties, bedrijven en kennisinstellingen.

Gelders Klimaatplan
In het Gelders Klimaatplan staan de maatregelen die we als provincie Gelderland willen nemen en welke maatregelen er nodig zijn in Gelderland. Voor dat laatste moeten ook bedrijven, organisaties én inwoners in beweging komen als ze dit al niet zijn. Dan gaat het bijvoorbeeld over elektrisch rijden, overschakeling van de industrie op hernieuwbare energie, natuurinclusief voedsel verbouwen en bouwen van woningen met hout. (link naar Gelderland klimaatneutraal?)

Gelders klimaatplan van ons allemaal
Het Gelders Klimaatplan wordt steeds aangepast aan de meest recente cijfers, innovatie en omstandigheden. Bij dit proces van aanpassingen wil de provincie meer inwoners op individueel niveau betrekken zodat het een klimaatplan wordt van alle Gelderlanders. Hoe dat moet gebeuren? Dat zijn de vragen die nu in de enquête van Kieskompas zijn opgenomen.

Gelders Panel
Kieskompas voert de onderzoeken uit onder een representatieve groep Gelderlanders, door het Gelderland Panel in te zetten. Meedoen kan via het panel of via sociale mediakanalen van de provincie. Eerdere onderzoeken én meer informatie is te vinden op: Denk met ons mee (gelderland.nl).

What to do after the climate march 2021?

Thanks a lot to all of you who joined the Klimaatmars yesterday!

We were with more than 40,000 people and thus the biggest Climate March in the Netherlands so far! This is amazing and would not have been possible without you!

However, one important message we took from yesterday’s speeches is also that many many more people publicly demanding climate justice will be needed to bring about the deep going systemic transformations that are necessary! Thus, we need to build stronger and enlarge our movement – step by step.

The next important date in the Netherlands will be the 12th of March. Many decentral actions will take place then, just before the municipal elections! So put the 12th of March already in your agenda!

And also consider joining the movement even more actively. We need you! As Meina from the National Climate Crisis Coalition put it yesterday: This Climate March has been organised by about 500 volunteers. Among these were also us from the Klimaatcoalitie Nijmegen – postering, flyering, mobilizing on social media to encourage as many Nijmegnaren as possible to join the Klimaatmars. What if, instead of 500 people, all the 40,000 who attended the march yesterday had helped in one way or another to make the march even bigger? History has shown over and over again that mass movements can bring about great changes. This is what we need now as well – and you can help make it possible!

Please consider joining us or another local, national or international climate justice group! There are thousands of ways in which you can contribute, also if you are an introvert, don’t like being among masses of people or only have little time!

If you are interested in joining the climaat coalition Nijmegen, check out this description of our working groups:

Have a good Sunday and see you all soon hopefully!

Nijmegen Goes to the Climate March

Will you help us make the Climate March on 6 November the biggest the Netherlands has ever seen? Then come along on 22 October on a (bike) tour through Nijmegen to mobilise as many Nijmegen citizens as possible for the Climate March! We need you for flyering and talking to people on the street!

Datum: 22 oktober 2021, 12:00

Plaats: Grotiusgebouw Montessorilaan 10 6525 HR Nijmegen

The Route


We will start at 12:00 on the campus (near the Grotius building). During the lunch break we will pass several faculties on the RU and HAN campus. Then we will cycle together to the city centre, to reach as many people as possible there. We end at the railway station between 15:00 and 16:00

November 6th

At the beginning of November, world leaders will gather at the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow. This is the moment for massive protest. In all corners of the world, people are taking to the streets to encourage political leaders to take action. This is also the case in the Netherlands: on 6 November, we will be going to Amsterdam en masse!
