The 1st Covenant Cities in the Spotlight call is now open!

  • environment

In the 10th year of the initiative, the Covenant of Mayors wishes to reward signatories that have been working within the Covenant framework and achieving remarkable progress in their local energy and climate action. Being a "Covenant City in the Spotlight" is a great opportunity to showcase the progress made and become a reference example for the whole Covenant Community and beyond.

The Covenant Cities in the Spotlight call is open to all Covenant of Mayors signatories. Both signatories that have committed to the 2020 mitigation target or to the 2030 mitigation and adaptation objectives are eligible as long as they are compliant with all Covenant requirements, notably in terms of reporting.

Covenant Cities in the Spotlight 2018 will award three signatories, one small-sized, one medium-sized, and one large-sized. The winners will be announced during the European Week of Regions and Cities 2018 and published on the Covenant of Mayors website.

Signatories wishing to participate in the Covenant Cities in the Spotlight are invited apply at the latest by the 15 September 2018. Applicants are encouraged to add attachments such as pictures, infographics, video, technical documents, etc.
