Our 2023 Conference starts at 9:30 am today. We have a great list of speakers lined up, ready to tackle the pressing issues of the energy crisis and climate change.
This year’s conference will focus on the local response to the energy crisis, discussing how it has shown (once again) that cities are frontrunners of Europe’s energy transition, and how these efforts can become long-term strategies to redefine lifestyles in the face of climate change.
The event will feature key-note speeches from Vice-President of the Commission, Frans Timmermans, Commissioner for Energy, Kadri Simon and Vice-President of the European Committee of the Regions, Apostolos Tzitzikostas.
In the panels, directors of the Commission's Directorate-Generals for Energy and for Climate Action will engage with nine Mayors from across Europe, who will present the measures that their cities have been taken to save energy on the short-term while protecting and empowering citizens.
This will be the opportunity to discuss how these measures can be embedded into long-term climate and energy action with the support of the Commission. This year, we will also be joined by two EU Climate Pact Youth Ambassadors in our second panel, to bring in the dimension of citizen engagement.
When? March 30, from 9:30 am to 13:30 pm.
The Conference is available to watch in: English, French, Spanish, Italian, Romanian, Bulgarian and Polish.
