The “Climate Action Plan” (CAP) is a project that aims to develop political and social measures to limit global warming to 1.5°. It was initiated by Climatestrike Switzerland and relies on public participation of experts and the population.

We therefore need your input!

The Project

The “Climate action plan” (CAP) project was initiated by the Climatestrike Switzerland. The project aims to develop the concrete political and social climate protection measures necessary to reach the 1.5°C goal together with experts and the population. By doing so, those affected by the measures to contain and adapt to, and by the effects themselves of, the climate (and sustainability) crisis are to be included in particular. Everyone is asked to join the working process or give online inputs. Also, events such as climate assemblies are going to be held to involve as many people as possible.

The climate action plan will contain concrete measures and show how Switzerland can make its appropriate contribution to achieving the 1.5°C target. The aim is to cover all the relevant polluting sectors in order to tackle relevant sectors in our society and to use all available levers.

The plan is drawn up in eleven working groups, divided into sectors. The elaboration and prioritization of the measures takes place according to a precise definition of tasks and in consideration of some already existing guidelines, such as sustainability, climate justice or the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
