Covenant of Mayors extends "City in the Spotlight Award" deadline to 3 September

Municipalties now have an extra two weeks to sumbit their applications for this year’s Covenant of Mayors Awards. The award will showcase the local climate action of cities and towns in three categories according to number of inhabitants. This year, the chances for smaller municpalities applying with with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants are particularly good.

The 2021 City in the Spotlight Award is open to all Covenant of Mayors – Europe signatories that have committed to the 2030 mitigation and adaptation targets. Signatories to the 2020 commitments may apply as long as they renew their Covenant of Mayors Ambition by 1 October 2021. Climate Alliance is calling on members that are also Covenant of Mayors signatories to apply for the award and thus set an example for other local authorities across Europe.

The winners will be announced in the Covenant of Mayors Ceremony on 7 October 2021. Applications can now be submitted through 3 September.
