German Mayors call upon Chancellor Merkel for greater climate support and action

Our policy work

Our dedicated team monitors and shapes policy developments according to local authorities’ needs and priorities.

Our advocacy involves:

  • policy monitoring and analysis
  • policy influencing
  • advocacy partnerships

The cities behind our network set the tone and shape the European energy transition agenda. Whereas a municipality alone has little influence, together we can make local authorities’ voices heard at national and European level.

Towards a fairer, climate-neutral Europe

The Covenant of Mayors is the world’s largest movement for local climate and energy actions. In Europe, over 10,000 cities and towns are joining forces to secure a better future for their citizens.
