Become a European Green Capital!

On 22nd May 2008, DG Environment has launched the European Green Capital award scheme in Brussels.
This award marks a city’s wish and capability to solve environmental problems in order not only to improve the quality of life of its citizens but also to reduce its contribution to global environmental problems.

Cities will be invited to apply via an online application form by the deadline on 1 October 2008 for the competition 2010 or 2011.
In the applications, the cities are asked to outline their programme of activities and events to disseminate experience and best practice on environmental matters.

Ten indicator areas have been defined for the purpose of evaluating the applications: local contribution to global climate change, mobility, noise pollution, quality of air, waste management, water etc.

A jury is composed of representatives from: European Commission, European Environment Agency, ICLEI, T&E, Union of Capitals of the European Union and Committee of the Regions

Further information will be available from www.europeangreencapital.eu.
