Energy coaching in companies, the promotion of tap water, ultra-fast rechargeable electric city buses, projects to support local populations of butterflies and badgers: these are a few of the best practices collected in this year’s Good Practice Reports. The brochures are a source of inspiration for other cities with the ambition to become more sustainable.
The examples in the report come from the cities that competed for the European Green Capital Award 2018 and the European Green Leaf 2017. The competition cycle was concluded in June 2016, with the selection of two winners, Nijmegen (the Netherlands) and Galway (Ireland).
The Good Practice Report for the European Green Capital Award 2018 contains 40 examples from the seven cities: Arad (Romania), Ghent (Belgium), Nijmegen (the Netherlands), ‘s-Hertogenbosch (the Netherlands), Tallinn (Estonia), Umeå (Sweden) and Warsaw (Poland). All of them have more than 100 000 inhabitants.
The brochure showcasing good practices from the European Green Leaf competition contains 19 examples from 10 cities, each with populations between 20 000 and 100 000: Aosta (Italy), Cornellà de Llobregat (Spain), Galway (Ireland), Kardzhali (Bulgaria), La Roche-sur-Yon (France), Mikkeli (Finland), Orbassano (Italy), San Miniato (Italy), Serres (Greece), Strovolos (Cyprus).
