Larger cities are consuming ⅔ of the world's energy and generating er 70% of global CO2 emissions. But, in the heart of every city lies an opportunity to drive a greener revolution. The cities can play a key role in meeting the targets outlined in the European Green Deal on climate change and some have made already important steps to become more sustainable. Spanish cities Alcoy and Logroño join the Greenathon initiative and bring two new sustainability challenges for EIC innovators to take the right green action.
