NetZeroCities has received over 180 applications from 25 countries to join the City Panels that will help shape the tools and services cities will use in their journey towards climate neutrality. The project has received 106 applications for the Strategic Panel and 74 for the Practitioner Panel.

The reasons expressed to participate in the city panels and the level of ambition and commitment to climate neutrality shown in the applications received are truly encouraging. The project looks forward to work with the selected applicants to help cities reach net zero and thereby support the EU Mission on 100 Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities by 2030.

NetZeroCities will review applications in February, inform the selected applicants beginning of March and hold a kick-off event for the City Panels before the end of March.
