As a way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the network with the current constraints, we have launched “Locked down but powered up!”, a series of Live Chats around energy transition topics. Reserved for Energy Cities’ members, the live discussions take place every Thursday after lunch. Do not miss the next rendezvous!

14 May, 13:30-14:30 CEST:

“How is the Covid crisis reframing the priorities in our cities?”

How is the Covid crisis reframing the priorities in the city? Is there any space left for climate action? Our second online chat is targeted to our elected members, offering a space to debate between peers on how this crisis is impacting the daily work of local leaders and changing the order of priorities. We will exchange views on the immediate (negative and positive) consequences of the crisis and how EU policies should be reframed to respond to those consequences.

Join the conversation with our guests:

– Eckart Wurzner, Mayor of Heidelberg

– Stephan Brandligt, Deputy Mayor of Delft

Hosted by Claire Roumet, Energy Cities, Strategic Partnerships & Overall Coordination
