 As the Covenant of Mayors will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year, and with the 2020 milestone coming closer, the Covenant Investment Forum and Ceremony to be held on 21 and 22 February 2018 in Brussels.

At a time when the EU is modernizing its energy, climate and transport legislation to better serve its citizens and deliver on its commitment under the Paris Climate Agreement. This will require active local participation to succeed while offering cities and communities new tools and rights for their own strategies. How can flexible local policies be developed to improve citizens’ lives and support EU-wide action?

In recent years cities’ involvement in energy and climate action has considerably been enhanced and an increasing number of municipalities take decisive measures towards decarbonisation and adaptation to climate change. However, additional support is necessary to help the Covenant Community implement their ambitious strategies.

Programme: 

The Covenant Investment Forum (21 February)

is an event dedicated to matchmaking between cities, business, and financial institutions on the financial engineering for projects in energy efficiency, renewables and smart energy, as well as climate change adaptation. It will bring together cities, business and financial institutions to exchange on good practices and successful solutions to common challenges.

 

The Covenant Ceremony (22 February)

is a political event that since 2008 gathers the Covenant of Mayors Community. It will showcase how local governments develop integrated climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies to improve the energy efficiency of buildings, transport or lighting, make greater use of renewable energy, and brace for climate hazards. At this ceremony, mayors will explore how those achievements can be scaled up to help meet or exceed the EU energy and climate objectives. They will have the opportunity to network with EU decision makers and relevant stakeholders taking part in the world’s largest energy and climate initiative of its kind.
