The Covenant of Mayors Ceremony is a political event that since 2008 has gathered the Covenant of Mayors Community. It will showcase how local governments develop integrated climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies to improve the energy efficiency of buildings, transport or lighting, make greater use of renewable energy, and brace for climate hazards.

At this ceremony, mayors will explore how those achievements can be scaled up to help meet or exceed the EU energy and climate objectives. They will have the opportunity to network with EU decision makers and relevant stakeholders taking part in the world's largest energy and climate initiative of its kind.
