The Twinning Programme will guide Twin Cities in their learning and replication efforts from Pilot Cities, with a practical focus on replicating the systemic transformation methodologies and innovative approaches demonstrated by the Pilot activities, on the road to climate neutrality.
The Twinning programme is a 20-month programme for knowledge sharing and transfer of good practices between upcoming selected Twin Cities, and the cities that were selected to join the NetZeroCities’ Pilot Cities Programme in March 2023.
The programme will be based on a practical knowledge sharing approach from Pilot Cities to Twin Cities, while also enabling a peer learning framework, allowing Pilot Cities to also learn from Twin Cities’ experiences. Upon completion of the learning cycle, Twin Cities will embed the learnings from pilot activities across the city via a Replication Plan.
The Call for Twin Cities is now open!
The Call for Twin Cities will select European cities to join the Twinning Learning Programme. The call is open from 3 May 12.00 CET until 30 June 23.59 CET to cities based in EU Member states or Horizon 2020 Associated Countries. Any city can apply, selected as one of the 100+12 Mission Cities or not.
Take a look at the resources below and submit your application to embark on a tailor-made learning and test new approaches to a rapid climate transition.
The Twinning Learning Programme is made up of three modules, namely Getting started, Co-creating and Capitalising.
The goal of these modules is to provide a framework for participating cities to enable the best possible knowledge transfer between cities. The framework is built around dedicated outputs and a facilitated process while leaving enough room for flexibility for cities to shape the learning journey.
To ensure that Twin City participants gain the most from the in-person exchanges, travel costs will be reimbursed up to a certain amount. Further information will be made available to successful Twin City applicants upon successful selection.
