Organised by: Catalunya En Comú, Barcelona En Comú, Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) and Transnational Institute (TNI) - with support of Greens/EFA
Some of the most impressive concrete efforts to speed up the phase-out of fossil fuel use in Europe can be found in cities - and the corona crisis has further accelerated this development. Cities can make a massive contribution to achieving a climate neutral Europe and an environmentally sustainable economic recovery. This panel will zoom in on what municipalist cities can contribute and their vision for what the EU should do to help unleash the potential of cities towards a successful European Green Deal.
