Rendez-vous with Energy Cities in Salerno (IT) from 28 to 30 April 2010

INVENTING TOMORROW: CITY LIFE IN TRANSITION

INTRODUCTION
Gérard Magnin, Executive Director, Energy Cities
The challenge of European cities is to invent today a tomorrow where quality of life goes hand in hand with low energy consumption. A thousand local authorities are already preparing their futures by committing to the Covenant of Mayors. In defiance of financial and economic pressures, they are changing the direction of their energy policies – with foresight, cooperation and imagination!

19 BREAKTHROUGHS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY
Sue Dibb, Head of Sustainable Business and Consumption, Sustainable Development Commission (GB)
Many ‘Breakthrough Ideas’ are driven from the grassroots. They encompass varying levels, from individuals, to communities, cities, and things that need to be done at local, national or international level and require government to act as the enabler.

MOBILITY: WHAT IF WE WERE AT THE END OF A CERTAIN AREA?
Pierre Laconte, President, ISOCARP
We are living the end of a story, that of cheap and abundant energy. Changes are already perceptible in the way cities and urban mobility are designed and organised. But are these changes the forerunners of a new period?

COVENANT OF MAYORS’ THEMATIC WORKSHOP

Good morning VIDEO (coming soon)

ACHIEVING THE COVENANT COMMITMENTS THANKS TO CLEAR VISIONS
Should cities focus their energy on short, medium or long term objectives?
Cities that have signed the Covenant of Mayors initiative are committed to reaching figure-based targets: 20% CO2 emission reduction by 2020 and following that, the division by 4 of their emissions before 2050. Quite a revolution! How do City Councils integrate such different time horizons when they vote their budgets every year? How can we use this long-term vision as a compass to guide us in the desired direction?

THE COVENANT OF MAYORS AS A NEW MODE OF GOVERNANCE IN THE EU MULTI-LEVEL SYSTEM
Kristine Kern, Assistant Professor, Wageningen University (NL)
Beyond local commitments, the Covenant of Mayors provides a good example of the multi-level governance an increasing number of players are asking for. What can we expect from this atypical initiative?

COVENANT OF MAYORS NETWORKING SESSION

Preparation of a baseline emissions inventory and SEAP for your city’s territory
Covenant signatories that prepared their baseline emissions inventory; developed their SEAP and successfully submitted it to the Covenant of Mayors Office are invited to present their experiences to the audience. Which methodologies did they use to collect the data? Did they prepare their inventory and SEAP alone or with help of external experts? Were the Covenant supporting materials (Guidelines, SEAP template, etc.) useful? Which difficulties did they encounter and what solutions did they find?
