Cities leading the way on climate action

Cities are climate leaders. 64% of EUROCITIES members have already committed to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. Among them, 12 cities have even committed to reach neutrality before 2040. And climate mitigation is only one side of the coin; 87.5% of our cities have adopted climate adaptation strategies to adapt to the impact of climate change and to protect their citizens.

Data people cities - EUROCITIES citizen data principles in action

We have selected 10 projects from different cities that are good examples to illustrate each of our 10 principles on citizen data. We want to show how local governments are fully engaged in exploiting the opportunities of the digital transformation in many different policy areas to benefit citizens, and we hope these examples will inspire other cities to do the same. Enjoy the reading and be inspired!
