TONETA analyzes Atlantic urban projects on sustainability

TONETA project, begun in June of 2011, is funded by the European Commission – EACEA through the programme “Europe for citizens” in the “Networks of twinned towns” priority. Its objective is to chart a strategy of urban sustainability, drawn from the experiences and observations of Atlantic cities and supported by young people. This initiative is led by Gijón, and counts as partners with Cardiff, AIRE 198, the Association of municipalities of Vale do AVE and with the support of the CAAC.

His primary means of dissemination, TONETA blog, collects the different analysis, with an emphasis on ongoing projects. Thus, it presents features and results of initiatives such as ANATOLE on economy of proximity, Climaatlantic on the reduction of carbon footprint, Know Cities on the economy of knowledge, ImaginaAtlantica on creativity, SPAA on territorial promotion or REVITA on the reuse of spaces.

It also describes actions locally, as performances on the Covenant of Mayors or local climate forums in Poitou-Charentes, Cardiff or Guimaraes, among others.
