As Mayor Ribó stated during the rubric, "the challenge is not only that cities become climate neutral, but that they do so as soon as possible."
During his speech at the event, held on September 8th in the regional senate, Joan Ribó warned of the "great significance of this institutional declaration that we sign today, because it can be the seed for a great pact for the decarbonization of cities" . In fact, the Mayor of Valencia has defended the idea of the pact “between the private sector, the public sector, academia, civil society, citizens and the media to ensure that the transition to sustainability is really a collective project."
Valencia will be able to further apply the learnings of TOMORROW in the field of stakeholders engagement and long-term strategic thinking to achieve the climate neutrality mission together with their fellow cities.
