European CCP Campaign

European Cities for Climate Protection (CCP) Campaign


The European Cities for Climate Protection (CCP) Campaign forms part of a worldwide movement started in 1993. It addresses climate change mitigation (minimizing the human impact on global warming by reducing the release of harmful emissions) and adapting to climate change at the local level. The CCP Campaign builds on cooperation and activities already implemented by individual CCP participants and national CCP networks in several European countries. All local governments in the EU27, the rest of Europe, the Middle East and Newly Independent States are warmly invited to join. It is a practical framework for action which in turn supports the Covenant of Mayors initiative.
