European Green Capital

by

Tonight, at an award ceremony in Brussels, the European Commission* will announce which European cities will recieve the awards European Green Capital, for the years 2010 and 2011. The nominees are Oslo, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Bristol, Frieburg, Copenhagen, Münster and Hamburg.

The award has been established to reward local authorities’ efforts for a more sustainable urban environment. I.e., this is a reward for the politicians. And I do think we have to recognize that some of them indeed deserve a pat on the back, for fighting the tra$h industry, the oldtimers, listless voters and elecetion politics. Further, the coming environmental plans of the cities who win the awards will be presented on the award website, will return with a summary of that!

(*For those who might not know, the Commission is by far the most powerful institution of the European Union.)
