A Green Deal that works for people

1 November 2021

Mayors across Europe recognise that climate action and social progress are two sides of the same coin.

About this event

Beyond environmental concerns, today it is widely recognised that climate change negatively impacts most aspects of human life – from social inequalities, to health, food security, working conditions and more. As the closest level of government to people, cities and mayors play a paramount role in fighting climate change and improving quality of life.

This COP26 ‘host zone’ session will be livestreamed direct from Glasgow. It brings together mayors to debate how the Green Deal is ‘localised’ in their cities, new ways to actively combine social and environmental policies, and tools that cities need to accelerate a sustainable and inclusive transformation. It will also feature a presentation and overview of Glasgow’s Green Deal.

Join us for a lively discussion with progressive Mayors from all across Europe, including:

  • Cllr Angus Millar – Green Deal Lead Glasgow
  • Anne Hidalgo – Mayor of Paris
  • Tomislav Tomašević – Mayor of Zagreb
  • Sharon Dijksma – Mayor of Utrecht
  • Bruno Bernard – President of Lyon Metropole
  • Marvin Rees – Mayor of Bristol
  • Sirin Hellvin Stav – Deputy Mayor of Oslo
  • Zdeněk Hřib – Mayor of Prague
  • Gergely Karácsony – Mayor of Budapest
  • Michelle Rubirola – First Deputy Mayor of Marseille


The Mayors Alliance for the European Green Deal is a growing coalition of 50 Mayors coming together to accelerate transformative action to reach EU’s goal of climate neutrality by 2050 and significantly contribute to the 1.5C targets of the Paris Agreement.

The event is organised by Eurocities, the largest network of major European cities.

It will take place on Wednesday 10 November 13:30-15:30 GMT (starts 14:30 CEST).
