Our Plan to Climate Neutrality

Together we are strong!

In cooperation with the organization GermanZero, we want to use the means of direct democracy (citizens petitions and decisions) to create the basis for implementing sufficiently committed climate protection at the level of Jena’s city politics and administration.

Stages to Climate Neutrality

Step 3: Implement the Climate Action Plan – [open]

Step 2: Contribute and Create a Climate Action Plan – [in progress]

Step 1: Citizens Petition – [done ✔]

We are successful! The city council has decided our demands ahead of time. 🎉

  1. Preparation of the voting question
  2. Submitting a voting question to the City for legal review, adjusting if necessary.
  3. Start of the citizens petition: Approx. 6000 valid signatures must be collected within four months.
  4. Verification of signatures for validity by the city
  5. Acceptance and resolution of the demands by the City Council (or a modified version with preservation of the basic concern in consultation with the persons of trust of the petition)
  6. Citizens vote
    If the simple majority votes in favor, the decision is adopted with the binding force of a city council resolution
    .
