On 5 September 2022 NetZeroCities will launch a Call for Pilot Cities. The NZC Pilot Cities programme will test and implement innovative approaches to rapid decabornisation over a two-year period. The selection of pilots will cover all thematic areas contributing to climate neutrality to ensure systemic transformation. Selected pilot cities will receive funding and hands-on assistance from the NZC Consortium partners.

Cities interested in this Call for Pilot Cities are encouraged to join the series of webinars organised by NetZeroCities on different aspects related to the call:

  • 27 June 2022: NetZeroCities Programme: Ambition, approach, application
  • 4 July 2022: NetZeroCities Pilot Cities Programme: Criteria for selection and the selection process
  • 5 September 2022: Technical information session

Please note that the first session (27th June) is also part of the NetZeroCities Online Conference for Mission Cities. Mission Cities that already registered for NetZeroCities Online Conference only need to register for the second and third information sessions.
