The Covenant of Mayors – Europe has launched four tailored programmes targeting those at various stages of the climate adaptation and mitigation journey: twinning, expert mission, peer review, and technical assistance.
Each programme has been designed to cater to the different needs of the Covenant Community, offering exchanges that aim to increase participants’ capacity to mitigate and adapt to climate change, to develop and implement ambitious long-term strategies as well as to address energy poverty.
Registrations are open until the 25th of March 2022.
Join the info-session on March 11th at 2pm.

The Expert Mission will be carried out through both online and physical meetings. During the physical meeting, the learner will host the experts for 2 days, and will receive a compensation of up to 500 Eur for the successful implementation of the action. Mentoring regions / energy agencies will receive a lump sum of 1500 Eur after completion of the learning programme and the reimbursement of up to 750 Eur for their travel costs.
