The Green Wave have swept the cities and towns across Europe, in last 4 years, creating a relevant and important political force that brings environmental, climate and social justice into communities. This further raised the need for exchange of policy approaches, best practices and experiences adding the new dimension to the work of Green Local Councillors Network of European Green Party.
The European Green Party is committed to facilitating cooperation between Green parties, and to strengthen Greens on all levels across Europe. Therefore, we are pleased to invite you at the first European Green mayors meeting that will be held on 28th of January 2021.
The main focus of the meeting is the local response to the Covid-19 crisis and funding opportunities with the EU Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027 and Recovery Plan.
We want this meeting to be a chance for mayors to hear and learn from others on what is being done across Europe to cope with the current pandemic, on city and community level. Further, we would like to make an exchange of knowledge and experiences on how and in what manner cities and municipalities are involved in the drafting of the national recovery plans, to be submitted to the Commission by April 2021.
