This conference on Translating the Green Deal into Local Action is held during the Belgian EU presidency. This is the perfect moment right before the EU elections to send a clear message to European policymakers for the post-2024 era. Just like you, we believe that the local level should be embedded in the heart of the Green Deal because it has the power to mobilize. It’s time to let the mayors speak!
The conference aims to highlight the way forward for the implementation of the EU Green Deal. What we need is a new multilevel governance framework, with bridges between the EU initiatives and more direct funding solutions. Be inspired during the conference by the best practices across Europe and share your own. Experience in-depth sessions with experts from the local to the European level. Share a glass with other local leaders while building strong connections for the future.
At the conference, the Committee of the Regions will formally hand over to Alexander De Croo (Prime Minister of Belgium). This Declaration with a clear set of recommendations and signed by 550 mayors and regional leaders from across Europe will be very powerful. To make sure our voices are heard, we are welcoming you to the heart of the EU: the Hemicycle of the European Parliament and the Committee of the Regions in Brussels.
The inspiration behind this conference is . The LECP translates abstract and long-term goals into tangible targets that everyone can relate and contribute to. We want to share our experience and learn from similar initiatives elsewhere in Europe so everyone can extrapolate these no-regret measures to fit their local context.
