NOPLANETB: Bridging science and society to foster inclusive transition strategies


NOPLANETB: Bridging science and society to foster inclusive transition strategies

NOPLANETB is a project funded by the European Commission under the DEAR program, in which PuntoSud is the lead organization. The other EU countries involved are: Portugal, Spain, France, Germany, Hungary, Poland, and Estonia. 210 selected small sized CSOs in these 8 countries will receive financial and capacity building support, involving local authorities, to promote science-based solutions and just transition practices and policies. Final beneficiaries of the action will be disengaged citizens, including marginalised and vulnerable groups



The overall objective is to convince a large number of citizens, especially those who are less sensitive to and less involved in global challenges, about the relevance of adopting local actions to mitigate the negative effects of the climate and ecological crises, including their impact on the social and economic spheres. Within this framework, small CSOs are deemed crucial to trigger effective win-win action models and to convey clear messages for the adoption of more sustainable practices. The specific objectives are consequently to test a considerable number of “Innovative-models” (in the area of adaptation to the climate and ecological crises), implemented by small CSOs with high informative potential in 8 EU countries, and to increase community acceptance and support of the Green Deal agenda, GAP III and SDGs (particularly 5, 11, 12 and 13). This will be achieved giving priority to youth organisations that do not have the financial, administrative and/or operational capacity to apply directly for EU funding and by promoting a series of activities aimed at increasing their capacities on different key themes.

Our activities:

  • Project coordination;
  • Set up and organisation of open in-country fora;
  • Set up of scientific committee and guidance to foster science-based small-actions;
  • Financial support for selected small and medium-sized civil society organizations in the eight partner countries;
  • Consolidation of best practices and production of evidence-based action fiches;
  • Organization of communities of practice;
  • Set up of a helpdesk to support the selected CSOs in their projects’ design and management;
  • Definition and delivery of a capacity building program;
  • Creation of the communication strategy of the project, linked to the development and dissemination of its brand;
  • Support to the cooperation with local authorities and local actors;
  • Organization of meetings and events, including the final conference.

Empowering Urban Youth For Climate Action


Empowering Urban Youth For Climate Action

FoodWave is a European project involving 16 countries and a network of 28 partners. FoodWave aims to create a new alliance between institutions, civil society and young people for an inclusive and sustainable future for cities, focusing on the importance of sustainable food systems at the urban level and the adoption of responsible practices and lifestyles by youth for climate change mitigation.



The “Food Wave” project aims to increase the knowledge, awareness and engagement of young people between the ages of 15 and 35 on sustainable food consumption and production practices for the mitigation and adaptation to climate change.

The project involves the development of activities to raise awareness and involve public opinion through: the co-creation of information materials for the implementation of information and mobilization campaigns, actions to engage young people online and offline, training courses aimed at young activists, activities aimed at young people from peripheral urban neighbourhoods, micro-financing for small youth associations and organisations, development of online and offline discussion platforms, youth exchanges between the northern and southern countries of the world, creation of food influencer networks , a pan-European campaign across digital channels, European Union Film Festivals, high-level events, collaboration with existing youth participation initiatives and visual art competitions.

Young people from 16 different European nations pledge to change their food consumption habits and actively promote the shift towards urban food systems that are ecological and inclusive, recognizing the effort of the European Union in mitigating the change climate and contributing to it.

Our Activities

The final independent external evaluation of the FoodWave initiative is aimed at analysing the quantity and quality of results to support the project evaluation to be carried out by the European Commission. The analysis focuses on the progress of the activities and the level of achievement of the expected results, without neglecting the description of obstacles and possible mitigation and adaptation measures, so as to provide the commissioning body and the partners of the initiative, suggestions aimed at improving the implementation of the project, considering also some management aspects. A work plan is implemented that focuses on the participation of the stakeholders involved by stimulating useful reflection for the development of possible future designs. The evaluation exercise is designed following the “theory-based” approach, integrating the critical reconstruction of the plan with some insights aimed at enriching the understanding of the most relevant practices that emerged; the proposed method follows the DAC evaluation criteria to which is added, given the specificity of the project, the criterion of “European added value.”

To carry out the evaluation activities, in addition to document analysis, information is collected through the following survey methods:

  • Semi-structured interviews, in order to gather opinions, perceptions, information and data from partner organizations’ contact persons and key stakeholders, supplemented if necessary by group seminars/discussions in order to enhance group dynamics and related contributions;
  • On-line questionnaires in order to involve the widest possible number of stakeholders to gather qualitative elements;
  • Group seminars/discussions to gather “broad” and qualitative evaluative elements;
  • Visits to some project countries and participation in project-sponsored events.
