How do we implement the Covenant of Mayors today at local level?

In Sweden, 49 out of 290 local governments (i.e. 17 %), ranging from the capital Stockholm to small municipalities, have signed the Covenant of Mayors. During the workshop organised on this day, local authorities attending will have the opportunity to present their own practices and discuss chosen topics among: ideas for Local Energy Days, international networking and opportunities, transport and planning, local energy, energy in buildings.

All workshops of the Swedish Covenant of Mayors Platform aim to give cities the opportunity to participate in practical seminars, boost innovation, discuss the national and European policy frameworks and government measures and give appropriate feedback and suggestions for improvement. Come and meet colleagues!
