Local and regional administrations have a great potential to serve as forerunner and model to showcase potential actions to improve energy-efficiency and to install RES in small-scale public settings. Also, they can showcase different options for adapting buildings to climate change impacts, e.g., via increasing passive cooling systems, green roofs/green walls, etc.
Many people visit public buildings (schools, kindergarten, library, swimming pool, etc.) during their daily activities and can thus get in touch with Best Practices implemented in these buildings. Also, administrations can use further options to improve awareness on the transition towards climate-neutral and climate-resilient Alps, e.g., during information events, etc
