The Covenant of Mayors is an initiative that encompasses to thousands of local governments across Europe, on a voluntary basis, with a common goal: Apply in each of the cities that signed EU climate and energy commitments.
The initiative started in 2008 and introduced a new global approach, of local application, for all actions related to the fight against climate change and in favor of efficient energy consumption. Since its signature, more than 7000 local authorities from 57 countries have been incorporated, taking advantage and feedback of the knowledge acquired by each one of them.
This Covenant of Mayors grows thanks to the experience gained in this last decade at the local and global. Its objective is to promote cooperation from the cities through the sharing of knowledge and strategies, by the implementation of patterns of action on climate and energy that are applicable by all entities that comprise it.
Lugo is a signatory of the Covenant of Mayors Initiative from June 30, 2016.
From LIFE Lugo + Biodinámico we encourage all city councils to join this great initiative.
