28 July 2017

The 5 June 2017, 27 participants from the central, regional and local governments from the Balearic Island attended the “Day of Eco-Municipalism” to boost the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy and Sustainable and Innovative Public Procurement and to officially launch the new SPPI Network of the Balearic Islands.

During the first session of the event, the agreement and promotion of the Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs) was presented.
