Conference on European Missions
Time: 9:30 – 12:15
This event will feature information on the European Commission's call for interest for the 100 Climate Neutral and Smart Cities Mission in the form of a debate with Committee of the Regions members and city representatives.
EU missions launched by the European Commission on 29 September 2021 are a new and innovative way to work together and improve the lives of people in Europe and beyond. EU missions aim to tackle big challenges in health, climate and the environment, and to achieve ambitious and inspiring goals in these areas by 2030. Their implementation requires a collective effort cutting across the boundaries of policies, programmes and different levels of governance. They aim to mobilise and activate public and private actors, such as EU Member States, regional and local authorities, research institutes, entrepreneurs and investors to create real and lasting impact. EU Missions will engage with citizens to boost societal uptake of new solutions and approaches.
The aim of this conference is to launch the EU Missions with cities and regions and to discuss the objectives and next steps of the Cities Mission in more detail, including the upcoming call for expression of interest. This hybrid event is being organised by the Committee of the Regions in cooperation with the EU Commission and will be available in English, German, French and Polish.
