2018, a year of cooperation and twinning activities

By Béatrice Karas, Floriane Cappelletti on 18 January 2018

Covenant of Mayors twinning programme

The results of the call of the Covenant of Mayors twinning programme have been unveiled. Amongst more than 100 applications received, 12 municipalities and 2 provinces have been selected. A total of seven peer-to-peer exchanges will be organised and funded by the programme : Leeds (UK) with Breda (Netherlands), Zadar (Croatia) with Udine (Italy), Albertslund (Denmark) with Ljungby (Sweden), Lecce (Italy) with Serres (Greece), Ghent (Belgium) with Vaasa (Finland), Formigine (Italy) with Marousi (Greece) and Province of Granada (Spain) with Province of Potenza (Italy).

The six twinnings between cities will focus on mitigation and adaptation issues, such as energy efficiency projects, cost-effective waste management system and biogas production, heat supply, green procurement, electric mobility, but also flood prevention and riverbeds conservation, land use, water management, agriculture and climate planning, while the exchanges for provinces will also touch upon best strategies on how to support Covenant of Mayors signatories.

Cooperation projects

TANDEM projects gains speed!

With the French-German Energy Transition Week, the French-German partnership passes in second gear. It consists in two events: the French-German Energy Transition Week and a conference on Pioneering Energy Transition Municipalities in Germany.
The French-German Energy Transition Week will take place around January 22, the anniversary date of the Friendship Treaty between France and Germany. Its aim is to set up creative and easy-to-implement awareness-raising actions. A pilot phase will take place in January 2018 in 4 to 6 French and German cities, but the first edition of the event, with a larger number of cities, will happen during the week of 17-27 January 2019.
