EU Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy launches new peer learning programme: apply now!

On 18 January the EU Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, which brings together thousands of local governments from 57 countries – including the EU neighbourhood – which have committed to implementing EU climate and energy objectives, launched a new peer learning programme 2021-2022.

The programme offers cities, regions and provinces across Europe and beyond the opportunity to take part in exchanges that aim to increase their capacity and knowledge through tailored peer discussions to tackle their climate and energy challenges.

The tailored exchange programmes target those at various stages of the climate adaptation and mitigation journey and will stimulate participants to exchange ideas on how to adapt to climate change through nature-based solutions, learn how to co-create a climate pact with citizens and business, to develop a climate neutrality strategy and successfully apply to competitive funding opportunities.

The successful applicants (up to 51 cities, up to 14 coordinators and 5 energy agencies) will be selected and paired by the Covenant of Mayors Office, according to their learning needs, challenges and expertise as described in the application.

The programme is open to all current and prospect Covenant of Mayors signatories (i.e. municipalities), provinces and regions, and supporters under the condition that they join the initiative before the start of the peer learning programme in June 2021.

The deadline for applications is 19 March 2021. The selection results will be announced in May 2021.
