Call for Green Deal best practices from EU local and regional authorities

The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) is launching a new call for best practices to its members, alternates, Young Elected Politicians (YEPs), and members the CoR network of local and regional councilors to collect and promote low-carbon and sustainable projects as well as climate commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from local and regional authorities across the EU.

Does your region or city have a specific project that targets the objectives of the European Green Deal? Has your region or city set a target to reduce GHG emissions by 2030 or 2050? Help us put the spotlight to your activities by submitting a best practice!

Projects and commitments will be published in the CoR's interactive map and promoted towards EU institutions, stakeholders and the press in order to showcase how cities and regions are contributing to a green recovery as to reach a more sustainable, inclusive and resilient society.
