    Covenant of Mayors - Stepping up action for a fair and climate-neutral Europe!


    online
    Organiser: Covenant of Mayors office

    Join us for the official launch of the renewed ambitions of the European Covenant of Mayors!

    Building on a survey among local authorities and on the climate-neutrality target of the European Union, the Covenant of Mayors movement in Europe is getting bolder: signatories are invited to step up their ambitions and accelerate a just climate transition!

    14:30 -15:00 - High level policy session

    Local leaders from our Political Board will show the way and be the first to embrace the new Covenant vision! You will get the chance to hear why it makes sense for local leaders to renew their ambitions as part of the European Covenant of Mayors movement.

    Moderated by Ewa Krukowska, Energy Journalist at Bloomberg News

    This session will be held in English. Interpretation will be provided in: German, French, Italian, Polish, Romanian, Slovak, Spanish.

    15:00-16:00 - Info session

    If the climate neutrality or just transition concepts are still a bit blurry to you, in the second part of the event, we will provide more information on the new commitments and answer your questions.

    This session will be held in English.

    Private session - Nomination of Ambassadors from the European Committee of the Regions

    The event will also celebrate in a private session the official nomination of the European Committee of the Regions ambassadors of the Covenant of Mayors. The Committee of the Regions has been supporting the initiative since its creation in 2008.
