Stepping up action for a fair and climate-neutral Europe

 

The Covenant of Mayors is stepping up action for a fair and climate-neutral Europe!

Building on a survey among local authorities and on the climate-neutrality target of the European Union, the Covenant of Mayors movement in Europe has strengthened its ambitions: signatories are invited to step up their actions and accelerate the climate transition.

Local leaders from our Political Board will show the way and be the first to endorse this new vision! Join us for the official launch of the renewed ambitions of the European Covenant of Mayors to make this vision a reality.

REGISTER for this high-level online event to be held on Wednesday 21 April, 14:30-16:00 CEST.

European Semester: How can local and regional governments have a say?

 

How can the EU fiscal rules and recommendations on investment defined in the Semester impact the competences of municipalities? How can the local and regional level be more involved in the Semester?

During the last years, some progress has been made in several Member States in the involvement of local and regional governments in the European Semester process, but there is still a lot to do. We will address all these questions and many more during our webinar "The European Semester at the crossroads: rebuilding our territories", on Monday 19 April.

Webinar: CitiesAreListening - Towards a Future Tourism Strategy

 

13 April 2021. Virtual

This session on the Future Tourism Strategy: economic recovery tool for a sustainable world  beyond pandemic is framed within the #CitiesAreListening experiences.

The dialogue will seek to  address what tourism in the post-pandemic world means for cities, how to ensure that tourism in  the world to come is both a tool for economic recovery, and how to make tourism an instrument of  social cohesion and reinforcement of cultural rights to meet the needs of citizens. A sustainable  instrument to ensure that recovery is done with the good of the planet in mind.

Urban Lunch Talk #18: 15-minute cities – Do’s, don’ts and dilemmas

 

28 May - 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Welcome to an #UrbanLunchTalk about the 15-minute cities pillar in Driving Urban Transitions to a Sustainable Future (DUT). Program and announcement of guests will follow, but you can register already now!

15-minute cities – Rethinking the Urban Mobility System and Space

The 15-minute city is characterised by compact, integrated city or neighbourhood structures with a high degree of self-sufficiency and local sustainability, though tightly interlinked with adjacent neighbourhoods and integrated in an effective interregional transportation network and sustainable supply chains. A fair distribution of public spaces is required, supporting active mobility modes connected with the availability and easy accessibility of longer-distance modes. There is also the need for bundling resources by cooperation and coordination among shippers, carriers as well as users and integrating environmentally friendly transport modes, alternative vehicles and active mobility for delivering goods and services.
