A blueprint for action. Intelligent cities challenge
“A blueprint for action: the European Commission’s 100 intelligent cities challenge” is a guide that has been developed as part of the European Commission’s Intelligent Cities Challenge (ICC). It provides cities with a blueprint and good practice case studies to support them with the implementation of the European Green Deal (EGD) at the local level – through a Local Green Deal (LGD). The guide outlines the rationale behind LGDs, and provides the key principles, levers, and steps for cities, stakeholders, and local communities to use to implement a LGD.
It relates to and supports other European initiatives relevant to cities and the European Green Deal objectives: the Committee of the Regions’ Green Deal Going Local, the Mannheim Message, the European Commission’s Climate Neutral and Smart Cities Mission. It also builds on a number of national initiatives and regulatory developments, such as the National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) adopted by all EU member states in 2019.
