While the EU is aiming for climate-neutrality by 2050, some are taking it even further. Through the Horizon Europe’s Mission on Climate-neutral and smart-cities, cities all over Europe will send in applications to become one of a 100 carefully selected European cities that will politically bind themselves through Climate City contracts to become climate-neutral by 2030.
Mrs. Anna Lisa Boni, aside from being the secretary-general of EUROCITIES, is a member of the Mission Board on Climate-neutral and smart-cities. Mrs. Boni will provide us with important insights about the latest development of the city-mission, as well as how covid-19 has been the unforeseen joker for many cities, altering their economic outlooks.
