The Call for Action is a pledge to enhance sustainability in all cities around the world. It seeks to inspire and to call upon cities to recognize and act on their role as drivers of sustainable development. The cities also offer to help other cities in their efforts to give sustainability a boost in their own city.

The EU Covenant of Mayors has officialy endorsed this Call for Action, very timely ahead of COP24 starting in ten days.
