Taking Action

How to sign up

From the 1st November 2015, it is no longer possible to join neither Mayors Adapt nor the (2020-oriented) Covenant of Mayors. It will henceforth only be possible to sign up to the new (2030-oriented) Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy.

For all information about how to sign up to the new Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy please see the FAQs.

How to join as a municipality?

Local authorities willing to sign up to the Covenant of Mayors must present and discuss the commitments in their municipal council (or equivalent decision-making body). Once a decision to sign up is formally made, local authorities should complete their information online here and upload their duly signed adhesion form, which can be downloaded in your national language here. The date of the council decision is the date that must be indicated as the council deliberation date in the Information and contact form. Local authorities, with a duly signed adhesion form and acceptance, will subsequently be included into the public list of Covenant signatories.

Note: The Covenant of Mayors is a voluntary commitment. Hence the adhesion is fully free of charge.
