    COP26 event: Racing to 1.5°: cities implementing evidence-based climate & energy action in Europe & Mediterranean


    Glasgow (+ online)
    Organiser: Covenant of Mayors office

    The event is co-organised by the Global Covenant of Mayors Office, Clima-MED, the Municipality of Segrate and the EU-funded project ENI CBC Med.

    Racing to 1.5°: cities implementing evidence-based climate & energy action in Europe & Mediterranean

    The session will take stock of how local governments in Europe and the Mediterranean are accelerating climate action, implementing science-based measures to fund and secure a resilient, climate-neutral future. Selected Global Covenant of Mayors cities and regions will reflect on their evidence-based, climate and energy plans and showcase how their ambition turned into impact-driven success stories.

    A panel will comprise city leaders and local government representatives, leading members of the four co-organising initiatives. It will also include representatives of the European Commission; the JRC and cities in the region. The panel will be moderated by the Covenant of Mayors.
