Call for best practices from EU local and regional authorities

The objective of the European Green Deal is to achieve climate neutrality in Europe by 2050. This ambitious goal is being pursued through the implementation of policies and regulations that are reshaping various aspects of our lives, including how we live, consume, travel, work, and produce energy. European cities and regions are at the forefront of driving innovative solutions to combat climate change, pollution, and the biodiversity crisis. By adopting and sharing best practices, local and regional authorities play a significant role in bringing about meaningful change and shaping a better future for our communities.

You are encouraged to contribute to this collective effort by sharing the successful initiatives and best practices from your city or region. To do so, please complete the provided form. Your contributions will be highlighted and promoted by EU institutions and stakeholders, appearing on the #EUGreenDeal map and social media channels. This will showcase the crucial role played by local and regional authorities in implementing the Green Deal.
