Today, the European Commission revealed the selection of European cities which are part of the EU Mission for 100 climate-neutral and smart cities. 94 of them are signatories of the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy! Their journey in the Mission and to climate-neutrality by 2030 will for sure be of great inspiration for our large community of signatories, by acting as experimentation and innovation hubs to put all European cities in a position to become climate-neutral by 2050.
This EU-Mission shares the same goals as the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy: peer-learning and knowledge sharing, involvement of citizens in the decision-making processes and commitments and tailor-made advices to achieve them. Associated with funding opportunities from the Horizon Europe programme, these signatories show a strong willingness to conduct a radical action, appropriate to the urgency of the situation.
