Description

GCA ceremony
High-level ceremony celebrating city leaders' commitment

Cities are key to achieving the EU’s environmental goals. Across Europe, local governments are taking action to ensure our cities are healthy and clean. 

Now, more than 60 cities have committed to go above and beyond for the environment by signing the Green City Accord. 

As part of this European Commission initiative, cities commit to stepping up their efforts to protect the environment in five key focus areas by 2030: air, water, nature and biodiversity, circular economy and waste, and noise. In this way, cities will also be supporting the European Green Deal and the delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals. 

To celebrate this commitment and to welcome new signatories, join us for the first online high-level signing ceremony for Green City Accord signatories. Mayors, local leaders and stakeholders will join the European Commissioner for the Environment, Oceans and Fisheries Virginijus Sinkevičius in a unique opportunity for mayors to directly discuss the Green City Accord and their environmental priorities with the European Commission. 

Stay tuned for further details regarding the agenda!
