San Sebastián’s 2050 roadmap, the “Plan de Acción Klima 2050 de Donostia / San Sebastián”, was developed in 2017 and adopted by the city in 2018. Its trajectory of emissions for 2030 and 2050 is based on the 2050 Climate Change Strategy of the entire Basque Autonomous Community. San Sebastián followed an integrated approach in the development of its roadmap. Firstly, five strategic areas of action were identified:

  • Information, i.e. the way citizens get to know and share information about climate issues,
  • Lifestyles, i.e. the relationship between citizens’ actions and GHG emissions,
  • Structures, i.e. the way citizens experience the city´s physical (e.g. infrastructure like buildings) character,
  • Technology, i.e. the way citizens apply knowledge gained through e.g. smart applications to reduce their emissions and finally,
  • Norms, i.e. the way citizens adjust to and support each other within their social relations.

Those five strategic areas of action (seepicture below) were then applied to four different sectors: Energy, Circular Economy, Land Use andMobility. This exercise within the city’s roadmap resulted in a diverse set of actions that will enable San Sebastián to reach carbon neutrality by 2050.
