On Wednesday 21 April, the Councillor for European Projects and Citizen Participation, Maria Antonia Laviós, participated as a guest at the training session on green fiscal policies, within the European project LOCAL 4 GREEN Plus of the INTERREG MED programme. This project, led by the Valencian Federation of Municipalities and Provinces, also involves partners such as the Musol Foundation and others from different countries such as Italy, Portugal, Cyprus and Greece.
The LOCAL 4 GREEN project aims to motivate the fight against climate change among different local, regional or international entities. It mainly aims to support local authorities through fiscal policies aimed at promoting renewable energy sources.
In the speech, the experiences and measures carried out by the municipality of Altea over the years within the project were explained, together with other municipalities such as Pedreguer and Quart de Poblet. The municipality of Altea has incorporated measures to promote renewable energies in the municipality and, together with the Environment, is working on the implementation of more green tax policies.
The approaches and motivations of the LOCAL 4 GREEN project are considered to be fully valid. Moreover, they have been reinforced by the discourse and strategies set out by the EU.
It has been made very clear that the green transition has come to be seen as the driving force and the motive that will drive the economy of the future.
