2021 Ceremony of the European Covenant of Mayors



The 07 October 2021



“Towards a fairer, climate-neutral Europe for all”


COMMIT, ENGAGE, ACT and NETWORK on the road to Glasgow

In April 2021, the Covenant of Mayors initiative has entered a new phase, officially launching its renewed ambition of a fairer and climate-neutral Europe.

Signatories now commit to reaching climate neutrality by 2050, implementing adaptation to climate change measures and alleviating energy poverty through a just transition. They also commit to engaging their citizens, businesses and local stakeholders in the transition, thus contributing to the European Climate Pact. The European Climate Pact is an EU-wide initiative inviting everyone to participate in climate action and build a greener Europe.

To celebrate this new phase, the achievements of the Community, and debate how to commit, engage, act and network towards a fairer, climate-neutral Europe, we are organising the first online Covenant of Mayors Ceremony!

The European Commissioner for Energy Mrs Kadri Simson and the Executive Vice-President for the European Green Deal Frans Timmermans will join Mayors, local leaders, Presidents of Regions, and representatives from municipalities of all sizes, in this celebration.

Information around the opening of registration and the agenda will come soon.

The event will also showcase the richness of climate actions everywhere in Europe with Satellite Ceremony Events that signatories and other members of the movement can organise to discuss local challenges and promote the 2050 Covenant of Mayors vision!
