Støtte til fællesskabet

Den politiske råd

DSC 0231Bogmesterpagten for klima og energi er en unik politisk bevægelse, som drives fremad af borgmestre.

Den europæiske borgmesterpagts politiske råd giver lokale og regionale ledere mulighed for at spille en større rolle i udformningen og videreførelsen af initiativet. Medlemmerne af udvalget fører også kampagner for at skabe bedre rammer for lokale klima- og energitiltag på det nationale og europæiske niveau, hvor der skabes opmærksomhed omkring lokale behov blandt europæiske og nationale beslutningstagere.

Dette borgmesterudvalg skal drøfte initiativets strategiske retninger for at sikre, at det passer bedst muligt til byernes behov og bliver yderligere skræddersyet til deres forventninger, og det skal understøtte dialogen mellem borgmesterpagtens fællesskab og EU-institutionerne.

Udvalget består af 7 borgmestre og lokalt valgte repræsentanter.
