The project aims at analysing the climate change policy of the City of Turku and compare it with the experience of three comparable cities, Malmö, Rostock, and Groningen. The city of Turku aims at becoming a carbon-neutral city by 2029. The strategy encompasses an implementation programme and specific measures. Since similar strategies have been decided upon and implemented in many European cities, we argue that there is much to learn from other forerunner cities. The project will focus on two aspects: first, it will study four matching forerunner cities, assess the learning capacities of their key actors (including public, private, and civil society actors) and the transfer potential of demonstration and lighthouse projects in these four cities. Second, it will, on a more general scale, ask how mid-sized forerunner cities like Turku, Malmö, Rostock, and Groningen can develop from city pioneers to city leaders, gain national and international recognition and reputation as leading cities, and thus help to upscale successful local projects nationally as well as internationally.
