European cities striving to become green and sustainable are constantly faced with challenges. The European Green Capital Award aims to highlight and reward cities’ efforts at overcoming these challenges. The importance of sharing information and supporting best practice between cities is paramount to a sustainable future, and is something that the European Green Capital Jury looks at, when choosing a city to be awarded the title.
