New twinning programme within the Covenant of Mayors

The new Covenant Twinning program launched this year is inviting municipalities to reach out and seek inspiration from peers. Climate Alliance member cities Ghent (BE) and Albertslund (DK) have both been selected to take part in the new programme. The City of Ghent will be twinning with the Finnish City of Vaasa, whereas the City of Albertslund has been selected to collaborate with the City of Ljungby in Sweden. All four cities are already strong in the climate and energy field with different areas of expertise. Seeing how this expertise will be exchanged to strengthening individual and joint efforts even further will be exciting. The twinning comprises of a series of meetings and study trips with detailed reports so that interested parties may also benefit.
