Illustration Covenant of Mayors Board

The Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy entered a new phase of its history with the launch of the European Covenant of Mayors Board, reaffirming the initiative as a unique political movement steered by mayors.

Launched on 10 February 2017, the Board is initially composed of 7 mayors and local elected representatives:

- Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris (France), member of the Global Covenant Political Board
- Daniel Termont, Mayor of Ghent (Belgium), President of EUROCITIES
- Eckart Würzner, Mayor of Heidelberg (Germany), President of Energy Cities
- Mercè Conesa i Pagès, President of the Province of Barcelona, Mayor of Sant Cugat del Vallés (Spain), member of Climate Alliance Executive Board
- Julije Domac, Director of REGEA, the North-West Croatia Energy Agency, President of FEDARENE
- Asa Karlsson Björkmarker, Vice-Mayor of Växjö (Sweden), Board member of ICLEI Europe
- Furio Honsell, Mayor of Udine (Italy), Spokesperson on Climate and Energy Transition for the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR)

The European Covenant of Mayors Board will give local and regional leaders the opportunity to play a greater role in shaping and further guiding the initiative. Board members will also campaign for enabling frameworks for local climate and energy action from the national and European level, raising awareness about local needs amongst European and national decision makers.

This Board of Mayors aims to discuss the strategic orientations of the initiative, to ensure it best fits cities’ needs and is further tailored to their expectations and to foster the dialogue between the European Covenant Community and the EU institutions.
