The event will gather political representatives and practitioners from the 112 Mission Cities, the Mission Platform, managed by NetZeroCities, high-level representatives from the EU institutions, and a wide range of stakeholders, including regional and national authorities, the financial community and representatives from the private sector.

The two-day event will provide a space for knowledge sharing, capacity building, and face-to-face collaboration towards a climate neutral future. Workshops and policy sessions will address key challenges as well as the practical aspects and collaborative strategies for the effective implementation of Climate City Contracts.

Opportunities for city leaders, the importance of multi-level governance and national platforms as well as connecting Missions, will be at the centre of the event. With a particular focus on the transformative journey towards climate neutrality undertaken by cities, the Conference will be a significant opportunity for the Mission to celebrate progress, join forces, and share inspiration.

This 2024 edition is being held in the framework of the Valencia Cities Climate Week, as part of the Valencia EU Green Capital 2024. The Valencia Cities Climate Week encompasses several key events alongside the Cities Mission Conference, in particular the European Urban Resilience Forum 2024 (EURESFO) and Energy Cities’ Annual Forum. This is a unique opportunity to create synergies and promote urban sustainability, as well as to find common solutions to achieve climate neutrality and resilience.
