    Several high level EU initiatives and EU projects focusing on support to local and regional authorities decided to join forces to offer a unique online programme for their stakeholders. As main organisers, the Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy – Europe, C-Track 50 and Pentahelix H2020 projects have welcomed many others to join and share their experiences.

    More than 200 different participants joined the sessions, and about 100 participated in each session, coming from local and regional authorities, energy agencies, consultancies, academia, networks…

    The European Commission showed supports to local authorities on their path towards climate-neutrality, notably through inspiring and informative welcome addresses from the Directorate-General for Climate Action, the Directorate-General for Energy, the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy, but also from the European Investment Bank.

    An impressive variety of topics were tackled through 19 presentations and 13 interactive breakout sessions: regional support to municipalities, carbon neutrality planning, adaptation, joint SECAPs, EPC, energy communities, crowdfunding, etc.

    The 3 webinars were recorded. You will find the links in our online library!
