📌 Also the YEP Programme of #EURegionsWeek ends today.
🔴 Re-watch the Closing Session with presentations from several Young Elected Politicians on the Future of Europe, Cohesion Policy and the EU Green Deal:
To deliver on the Green Deal objectives, we must strengthen multilevel cooperation and build on the experience of local governments. The Green City Accord is an excellent step in this direction. The transition will happen locally, or will not happen at all.

🎤Juan Espadas Cejas, Mayor of Seville and Chair of the ENVE Commission opened the discussion with CoR members and participants 💬
The European Green Deal is going to be the pillar above which we can build back better our cities and regions, creating new jobs, reducing our CO2 emissions, but also fighting social inequality. Today the European Committee of the Regions showed once again to be able to be a platform that can bring together different stakeholders and we will continue to work to be the bridge bounding European institutions, local and regional authorities, civil society and businesses, to build a more sustainable future.
