EU Environment Commissioner Janez Potočnik said: “This is the sixth year of the European Green Capital Award and it is encouraging to see former applicants reapplying and some cities entering that have not previously participated in the competition.

The European Green Capital Award is given to a city which can act as a role model to inspire other cities and share best practices.
