Save the date for the 2018 EU Covenant of Mayors Ceremony and Investment Forum!

As the Covenant of Mayors will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year, and with the 2020 milestone coming closer, you are invited to the Covenant Ceremony and Investment Forum to be held on 21 and 22 February 2018 in Brussels.

The EU is modernizing its energy, climate and transport legislation to better serve its citizens and deliver on its commitment under the Paris Climate Agreement. This will require active local participation to succeed while offering cities and communities new tools and rights for their own strategies. How can flexible local policies be developed to improve citizens’ lives and support EU-wide action?

In recent years, cities’ involvement in energy and climate action has been considerably enhanced and an increasing number of municipalities take decisive measures towards decarbonisation and adaptation to climate change. However, additional support is necessary to help the Covenant Community implement their ambitious strategies.

The Covenant Investment Forum - 21 February

... is an event dedicated to matchmaking between cities, business, and financial institutions on the financial engineering for projects in energy efficiency, renewables and smart energy, as well as climate change adaptation. It will bring together cities, business and financial institutions to exchange on good practices and successful solutions to common challenges.

The Covenant of Mayors Ceremony - 22 February

... is a political event that has regularly gathered the Covenant of Mayors Community since 2008. It will showcase how local governments develop integrated climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies to improve the energy efficiency of buildings, transport or lighting, make greater use of renewable energy, and brace for climate hazards. At this ceremony, mayors will explore how those achievements can be scaled up to help meet or exceed the EU energy and climate objectives. They will have the opportunity to network with EU decision makers and relevant stakeholders taking part in the world’s largest energy and climate initiative of its kind.

Please save the dates of 21 and 22 February 2018 for these not-to-be-missed events!

Registration will open soon. More info to come at

We look forward to celebrating our shared commitment for a sustainable future!

Energy Cities is one of the founding networks of the Covenant of Mayors and has been leading its coordination office since its creation in 2008.
