The Green City Accord is a European Commission initiative to mobilise European mayors committed to safeguarding the natural environment. The Accord aims to support cities in their efforts to achieve cleaner and healthier environments, thereby improving the quality of life of city dwellers.
Cities joining the Accord will commit to step up their actions in five areas of environmental management:
The initiative will support cities in designing and implementing actions covering these five areas. Other activities include the collection and dissemination of good practices, the organisation of awareness-raising workshops in four European countries, and promoting knowledge transfer between city authorities through a ‘twinning programme’.
The Green City Accord will be developed in coordination with city experts and officially opened for cities’ signature during the second half of 2020.
The initiative is implemented by Eurocities (as lead partner) together with ICLEI and CEMR.
