Forum of the CoR Covenant Ambassadors

During this forum, the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) will stage the launch of the new support network 'Covenant Ambassadors' as a political endorsement to underline the importance of local and regional authorities in implementing the objectives of the Energy Union and the COP21 commitments.

The policy session on Energy Union and the territorial aspects of emissions reductions in the energy sector will highlight policy recommendations of LRAs in key Energy Union policy areas. A particular focus will be on the Euro-Mediterranean area. This session will serve to prepare joint activities in relation to the COP 22 in Marrakesh. One part will include a structured dialogue with Commissioner CaƱete.

The second session will focus on the 'Covenant Ambassadors'. It will outline their objectives and future activities and present tools available to these climate and energy ambassadors for their promotional work.
