Politični odbor

DSC 0231

Konvencija županov za podnebne spremembe in energijo je edinstveno politično gibanje, ki ga usmerjajo župani.

Odbor Evropske konvencije županov ponuja lokalnim in regionalnim vodjem večjo vlogo pri oblikovanju in nadaljnjem usmerjanju pobude. Člani odbora se prav tako zavzemajo za okvire za lokalne načrte za podnebne spremembe in energijo na nacionalni in evropski ravni, ozaveščajo o lokalnih potrebah med evropskimi in nacionalnimi odločevalci.

Namen Odbora županov je razpravljati o strateških usmeritvah pobude, zagotoviti, da kar najbolje ustreza potrebam mest in je prilagojena njihovim pričakovanjem ter okrepiti dialog med skupnostjo Evropske konvencije in institucijami EU.

Odbor sestavlja 7 županov in lokalno izvoljenih predstavnikov.
