National Training for Coordinators and Supporters of the Covenant of Mayors

Venezia, Italy
Sala Conferenze Palazzo Grandi Stazioni Cannaregio, 23
This is an open national training session on implementing Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs), addressed to local governments (LGs) and coordinators and supporters of the Covenant of Mayors (C&S). It is organised by the MAYORS in ACTION project partners.

SEAPs formulated by LGs are often very ambitious and sometimes the planned actions are difficult to realise. Concrete technical and financial tools are needed to implement sustainable actions successfully.

This event is one of the main parts of the MAYORS in ACTION's capacity building process, which is designed to help implement a set of bankable sustainable energy projects.

It will provide LGs and the C&S with a set of already existing tools and practices to be shared among peer partners. Project partners (such as the Province of Genova, the Veneto Region and SOGESCA) will share their experiences and display the material which has been developed within the project - this includes very experienced partners such as the Province of Barcelona and the City of Zagreb.

Guest keynote speakers will also highlight the point of view of both more and less experienced C&S and will provide instruments for implementing and monitoring SEAPs.
