Abstract

At the 2010 meeting of the ‘Covenant of Mayors’ held at the European Parliament in Brussels, the mayors and civil servants in attendance were treated to a rendition of a song by Danish musician and composer Søren Eppler entitled ‘Me and You’. Composed for the Zealand region to ‘provide optimism and energy’1 on the issue of climate change, Eppler’s song provided a performance of the desire and vision of the Covenant of Mayors: to promote energy efficiency and the development of renewable energy in the European regions. Weaving a picture of a harmonious coming together of nature, society and technology the song opened: I dreamt that I was living in a culture, developing on (sic) clean technology in co-creating climate with the nature that’s giving me this higher energy.
