Launch of first CONNECT-Covenant of Mayors exchange: learn from colleagues about climate!

25 September 2018

The CONNECT team is happy to present to you a new opportunity for learning through an exchange with colleagues: in this case specifically, an exchange between signatories of the Covenant of Mayors in Europe and the Covenant of Mayors in  Sub-Saharan Africa (CoM SSA), as announced during the event « Continuing Professional Development Course: Climate Response and Sustainable Urban Development in Africa » held on 3-6 September 2018 in Saly, Senegal.

We are looking for cities engaged in the CoM SSA initiative that have come across issues and/or problems related to climate change response and sustainable urban development. On what topics could external support and inter-Mayoral cooperation be of benefit to you?

The format of this exchange will be a ‘ CONNECT group exposure visit’. This means that we ask you to apply as a group (max. 8 cities; from one or multiple countries), with a joint challenge which you would like to work on with European cities. You can find the application forms here (EN) and here (FR) and add a letter of engagement in French or English (you can apply as a Francophone group or an Anglophone group). The deadline for applying is the 15th of October. Don’t worry, applying is quick and easy and if you need support, please contact connect@ccre-cemr.org.

The exchange is expected to take place before the end of the year. Details on date and place will follow after a match with a European town or city has been made by the CONNECT selection committee.
