The EU’s Mission “100 Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities” has launched its Call for expression of Interest !

The Call for Expression of Interest will allow cities to state their interest in becoming climate-neutral by 2030 as part of the Mission and to submit information about their current situation, ongoing work and future plans as regards climate neutrality. The objective is to deliver 100 climate neutral and smart cities by 2030.

The Deadline for registration is the 31th of  January 2022.

In order to ease the comprehension of the Mission “100 Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities by 2030”,the European Commission has made available an Info Kit for Cities composed of two parts:

  • “Understanding the Cities Mission”- is a practical guide to help cities prepare for the Call for Expression of Interest to participate in the Mission
  • “A short guide to urban climate neutrality”- offers resources and strategies towards climate neutrality at city level. This part is intended as guidance throughout the implementation of the Mission, and cities are not expected to have addressed the various aspects highlighted in this part of the document at the stage of expressing their interest.

After launching the Call for Expression of Interest of Mission Cities on November 25th,  a series of webinars are being organized for cities considering applying.

The webinars series will take place as follows:

30 Nov – 2-4 pm CET Webinar on eligibility, climate neutrality target, vision/ambition, current level of emissions

10 Dec – 2-4 pm CET Webinar on existing plans, initiatives, synergies

15 Dec– 2-4 pm CET Webinar on finance, governance, partnerships, capacity, barriers, risk and assistance needs

Rewatch the webinars: Part I, Part II and Part III.

An  Info Day on EU Missions will also take place on 18 and 19 January. More information here.
