City of Ghent, The Mina-Raad Council

The Mina Raad (Council for climate and nature) has permanent members who are concerned with nature and the climate and assist policy in their climate policy in their areas. As President of the Mina Council, I will give body to this advisory council to think more on the climate approach in urban policy and, in addition to giving pure advice on policy plans, also propose the policy of the City of Ghent on the approach to climate policy. We are going to attract even more people (not only the members), specialists and interested citizens, who will draw up proposals in working groups for the climate approach of a city government. In this way, we are not only going to advise the city government on their taken policy decisions, but we are also going to make their proposals that will allow them to go for a better and more progressive climate policy. With a follow-up policy of the opinions and advices, we will also push to turn this into policy climate-decisions of the City of Ghent.
