7 October 2021 - Online... and everywhere in Europe!
COMMIT, ENGAGE, ACT and NETWORK on the road to Glasgow
Since 2008, over 10,000 local governments have been acting as part of the European Covenant of Mayors movement to reduce their GHG emissions, adapt to climate change, secure access to affordable and sustainable energy, and, overall, to improve the quality of life for their citizens.
In April 2021, the initiative entered a new phase, officially launching its renewed ambition of a fairer and climate-neutral Europe.
With this renewed ambition, signatories commit to reaching climate neutrality by 2050, to increasing their emission reduction targets, implementing adaptation to climate change measures and alleviating energy thanks to a just transition. They also commit to engaging their citizens, businesses and local stakeholders in the transition, thus contributing to the European Climate Pact.
We are inviting all cities, regions, and all members of the Covenant of Mayors Community in Europe to get together in our online ceremony to be held on 7 October 2021, from 09:30 to 13:00.
We will celebrate our shared 2050 ambition, your achievements as part of the Covenant Community, and discuss how to commit, engage and act towards a fairer, climate-neutral Europe. Register here!
