Conference for local and regional leaders ; 550 mayors fit for 55! 

"European mayors committed to the 'fit for 55' initiative are invited to a conference in Brussels on March 15, 2024. The event, held during the Belgian EU presidency, focuses on translating the Green Deal into local action. It's a crucial moment before the EU elections to send a clear message to policymakers for the post-2024 era. The conference aims to showcase the way forward for implementing the EU Green Deal, emphasizing the need for a new multilevel governance framework. Attendees can gain insights from best practices, share experiences, and connect with experts across different levels. It's an opportunity for mayors to make their voices heard and build strong connections for the future."

Post-2024 Recommendations:

During the conference, the Committee of the Regions will officially present the Declaration of European local and regional leaders to Prime Minister Alexander De Croo of Belgium. This powerful declaration, featuring clear recommendations and signatures from 550 mayors and regional leaders across Europe, aims to ensure the resonance of our collective voices. To amplify this impact, we invite you to join us at the heart of the EU: the Hemicycle of the European Parliament and the Committee of the Regions in Brussels.

Flemish Inspiration:

The conference draws inspiration from the Flemish Local Energy and Climate Pact (LECP), a model that transforms abstract and long-term goals into concrete targets accessible to everyone. Our goal is to share the LECP's success and learn from similar initiatives across Europe, enabling all participants to adapt these no-regret measures to suit their local contexts.
