EU Cities Mission

This network brings together foundations who can provide a unique contribution to the journey of climate neutrality in cities through their capacity to engage stakeholders, take risks and think long-term, as well as to provide additional funds and investments.


The EU has pledged to reach climate neutrality by 2050. 100 Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities by 2030 is a European Union Mission to enable thriving, democratic and climate resilient futures, and philanthropy has a role to play.
