Austrian Covenant Club launched


The Austrian Covenant Club has been launched in the context of Climate Alliance Austria’s annual conference on the 18th of April 2012 in Hall in the Tyrol.

Climate Alliance Austria’s annual conference was the ideal setting for launching the Austrian Covenant Club: more than 180 people, mainly mayors and councillors from the Austrian Climate Alliance member municipalities, attended the conference. Main topic: The future of municipalities – energy efficiency, mobility, civic participation.

Thomas Brose from Climate Alliance’s European secretariat in Germany presented the Covenant of Mayors initiative in general, before Peter Molnar, director of Climate Alliance Austria, pointed out the advantages of joining the CoM and launched the Austrian Covenant Club.
