On February 27-28, 2020, the 2-day communication workshop “Advancing Covenant of Mayors in Eastern Partnership countries” was successfully held in Minsk. The capital of Belarus brought together representatives of national authorities and NGOs from 6 countries to discuss the effective ways of strengthening communication on new Covenant in the region.
The workshop provided an excellent opportunity for stepping up joint efforts of Covenant National Coordinators (CNC) and Supporters (CS) for promoting the EU energy and climate targets, sustainable municipal development and sharing best communication practices in the EaP countries.
On the first day the participants were updated with the recent developments of the Global CoM as well as of such EU initiatives in climate and energy spheres as EU4Energy, EU4Environment and EU4Climate. The CNCs and CSs shared their best communications practices implemented in the EaP countries.
On Day 2, the participants were split in two teams to work in groups for developing the communication plans of the promotional campaign devoted to the Sustainable Energy Day celebration and organisation of the EE award ceremony.
In the afternoon, the site visit was paid to the educational institution "Republican Centre for Ecology and Local Studies" – the promotional centre of energy and natural resources saving among the schoolchildren.
