The Covenant of Mayors office on behalf of the European Commission (DG Energy and DG Climate Action) seeks to gather a so-called “Coalition of the Willing”, a group of organisations, institutions and initiatives whose work is closely related and complementary to the Covenant of Mayors, its goals and activities.
The goals in setting up the coalition are to:
– support the streamlining of initiatives for cities and ensure greater collaboration and joint
– make sure that this support and already existing offers reach the cities
– feed feedback from cities received by the Covenant of Mayors and others back to initiatives and
stakeholders to continuously improve the provided support.
These organisations and initiatives will be gathered around key topics to ensure effective discussions and inclusion of all relevant partners. These topics comprise adaptation, access to energy and financing for local climate action.
