Member Benefits

Become part of Europe's largest city network for comprehensive and fair climate action!

Climate Alliance is a true trailblazer when it comes to climate action – our over 30 years of experience working with municipalities on the topic, our longstanding cooperation with indigenous peoples for climate justice, the Climate Alliance principles and goals to which every municipality commits itself, as well as the Climate Alliance member charter with concrete recommendations for action are good examples of this. You’d be hard-pressed to find another network that offers municipalities so much for such a moderate membership contribution.

As a member, you become part of a European network of like-minded people and stakeholders for municipal climate action. The opportunities for exchange abound and the European Secretariat advocates for the interests Climate Alliance members, striving to make the voice of every Climate Alliance municipality heard at the national, European and international levels. In working primarily with the administrative and technical staff in our member municipalities, we provide valuable support for climate action on the ground
