Tartu Climate Assembly

Tartu’s first Climate Assembly will take place in April 2022, where, together with the city’s residents, we will look at ways to make the urban space safer and more attractive.

A total of 55 randomly selected residents of Tartu will be participating in the Climate Assembly, taking into consideration their gender, age, place of residence, occupation and mother tongue. Invitations to the Climate Assembly will be sent to around 15,000 people in Tartu.

The aim of the Tartu Climate Assembly is to involve the city’s residents in discussions on how to make moving about and being present on the street space of Tartu safer and more attractive. The Climate Assembly will submit proposals to the City Government on how to make Tartu’s streets safer and healthier, reduce traffic-related noise and air pollution in the urban space, and shape a more climate-friendly future.

The adopted proposals will be presented to the City Government. Some of the proposals can perhaps be implemented as early as 2022; however, the more ambitious changes will take time and will feed into the city’s street space investment plans.

The City Government will provide regular reports to the citizens concerning the implementation of the Climate Assembly’s proposals.

The first-ever Climate Assembly in Tartu is a novel form of engagement, one that is used around the world in local and national decision-making. The introduction of the Climate Assembly in Tartu is a pioneering initiative for the whole of Estonia.

The Climate Assembly is being organised by Tartu City Government, together with Rohetiiger and Miltton.
