Zero Carbon Cities

New climate change targets in line with the Paris Agreement

The URBACT Zero Carbon Cities project, is led by Manchester.

Seven European cities are involved in this project :

  • Bistrita (RO)
  • Frankfurt am Main (DE)
  • Manchester (UK)
  • Modena (IT)
  • Tartu (EE)
  • Vilvoorde (BE)
  • Zadar (HR)

The network of 7 European cities, will establish science-based carbon reduction targets, policies and action plans, including governance and capacity building.

These action plans will enable them to contribute to the successful implementation of the Paris Agreement and the EU’s strategic vision for carbon neutrality by 2050.
