    Extended peer learning opportunities for Covenant Coordinators and Supporters


    On the 18th of January 2021, the Covenant launched its new peer learning programme, which is open for registrations until 31st March 2021. Regions, sub-regional authorities and energy agencies can participate if they already are a member of the Covenant of Mayors or if they join by June 2021.

    The Covenant of Mayors' peer learning programme has been designed to cater to the different needs of the above-mentioned entities. In this vein, we are launching tailored programmes targeting those at various stages of the climate adaptation and mitigation journey. These programmes will ensure participants undertake stimulating exchanges including activities such as:

    • Exchanging ideas on how to adapt to climate change through nature-based solutions

    • Learning how to co-create a climate pact with citizens and business or to develop a climate neutrality strategy

    • Getting tailored feedback and advice on their long-term energy planning

    Each of our programmes will ensure a tailored exchange between participants.

    Successful applicants will be offered a place on the programme that most accurately responds to their needs and challenges as described in their application.
