From the 27 April 2021 14:00pm to the 27 April 16:30pm

This webinar will focus on the role of local authorities in delivering the Renovation Wave, particularly through narratives and financing.

About this Event

The Renovation Wave sets very ambitious targets and high challenges for municipalities. How to convince local decision-makers and engage key local stakeholders for action? Who can be the winning coalition? How to finance bundled projects smartly and get third party financing? How municipalities can create one-stop-shops for boosting renovations?

This webinar is aiming to discuss the above questions with signatories of the Covenant of Mayors in an interactive way, getting also feedback on the narratives, being developed in the EEW4 project.
