Illustration Covenant Supporters

Covenant Supporters are defined as not-for-profit organisations (associations of local and regional authorities, networks, thematic agencies …) with the capacity to promote the Covenant of Mayors and to mobilise and support their members and/or local authorities to reach the Covenant of Mayors’ objectives.

They take action on their territories and areas of expertise (e.g. energy, environment, water, air), and at different levels of governance (e.g. European, national, and regional/local) to promote the Covenant of Mayors initiative and support the commitments of their signatories. With expert knowledge of the regulatory, legislative and financial framework under which they operate - be it at the local/regional, national or European level – Covenant Supporters are ideally placed to provide tailored advice to signatories and identify synergies with existing initiatives.

Main contact: Imma Pruna
Position: Chief of the Technical Secretariat


The Network of Cities and Towns Towards Sustainability is an association of municipalities, a cooperation platform to move towards sustainable development, a framework for promoting and implementing projects of common interest in the field of sustainability.

The association was created on July 16, 1997 at the meeting held in Manresa. The Network was founded to promote the sustainable development of our cities and towns, through the implementation of Local Agenda 21.

And to publicize the activities of the associated municipalities as a whole

Today, we are more than 230 local partners throughout Catalonia, together with the Barcelona Provincial Council, various local councils and other organizations observers.

One of the fifteen main objectives of our Strategic Plan 2011-2015 is to "support the Covenant of Mayors to our members in common work items. Particularly through the promotion of renewable energy, energy efficiency, improving energy local accountabilty and prevention of light pollution."

So on, we create a Working Group for Local Sustainable Energy with more than 90 people participating. In 2013, also,we create a new working group: the Catalonian Covenant Club, formed by all catalan covenant coordinators (5) and supporters (2) ni the first phase.
