Cities on the frontline of the energy crisis

Covenant of Mayors – Europe conference

30 March 2023, 09:00 - 13:00
Brussels, Belgium- European Commission's Charlemagne Building, Rue de la Loi 170

The Covenant of Mayors – Europe invites local leaders to come together to reflect on how local authorities are responding on different fronts to the ongoing energy crisis: by accelerating energy efficiency measures, investing more in green local power generation, and shielding citizens and local businesses from soaring energy prices. It will also be the occasion to envision mid- to long-term solutions for a deeper societal transformation, shifting away from over-consumption to more resource sufficiency.

Local leaders from European cities, municipalities, and regions will exchange with representatives from European institutions, including Executive Vice-President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans, EU Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson, and President of European Committee of the Regions Vasco Cordeiro.

The event will take place in the heart of the European district in Brussels, and will be followed by a networking lunch. To participate, register here by Thursday, 23 March (23:59 CEST).

The Covenant of Mayors – Europe office is managed by a consortium of city networks, including ICLEI Europe.
