European Green Leaf Network meeting
Ljubljana, 23 June 2016

Representatives from winning and shortlisted Green Leaf cities met in Ljubljana on 23 June for their first networking meeting. The aim of the meeting was to establish the goals and trajectory of a European Green Leaf Network following a similar path laid out by the European Green Capital Network. All cities in attendance—Mikkeli, Mollet del Vallès, Torres Vedras, and Galway—showed strong commitment to the network's goal of sharing knowledge and good practices from EGL winners and finalist cities. Two cities that could not attend—Cornellà de Llobregat and Ludwigsburg—expressed their strong interest in joining the network.

The next meeting of the European Green Leaf Network is scheduled to take place in Mollet del Vallès in late autumn 2016.
