Le conseil politique

DSC 0231

La Convention des Maires pour le climat et l'énergie est un mouvement politique unique en son genre, piloté par des maires.

Le Conseil politique de la Convention européenne des Maires donne aux dirigeants locaux et régionaux l'occasion de jouer un rôle plus important dans la conception et l'orientation de l'initiative. Les membres du Conseil promeuvent également la création de cadres propices aux actions locales en faveur du climat et de l'énergie au niveau national et européen, en sensibilisant les décideurs européens et nationaux aux besoins locaux.

Ce Conseil des Maires a pour objectif de discuter des orientations stratégiques de l'initiative, de veiller à ce qu'elle réponde au mieux aux besoins des villes et qu'elle soit davantage adaptée à leurs attentes, et de favoriser le dialogue entre la Communauté européenne de la Convention et les institutions de l'UE.

Le Conseil politique est composé de 7 maires et élus locaux.

  • Nom: Belinda Gottardi
    Position: Mayor of Castel Maggiore
    Pays: Italy

    "The fight against climate change must be channelled through a new awareness of Local Governments and citizens, the awareness of the need for a global commitment and a radical change in our lifestyle. This cultural transition must be guided by local administrations in a shared and participatory path with economic and social actors together with citizens."

  • Nom: Martin Horn
    Position: Lord Mayor of Freiburg
    Pays: Germany

    "We need to enact a rapid and deep transformation of our society to ensure that it is more sustainable and just for all.

  • Nom: Pilar Díaz Romero
    Position: Maire de Esplugues de Llobregat
    Pays: Spain
  • Nom: Rafał Trzaskowski

    “Local and regional leaders are fully committed to the Green Deal. We want to implement ambitious, yet realistic targets that will serve our local communities, also by creating new jobs – so desperately needed today, and improving competitiveness of our local businesses. We believe that a more ambitious climate policy can support and not undermine a successful economic recovery from the crisis caused by the pandemic.”
