Stockholm is the first city to be awarded European Green Capital by the European Commission. During 2010, Stockholm will be the first European Green Capital. That has been decided by the new EU initiative.
Everything from water protection plans, to public transport and work against fossil fuel emissions has been reviewed. In all aspects, Stockholm was conceived as a front runner. The following is an excerpt of the jurys motivation:
Through its well-conceived communications strategy, Stockholm has shown its commitment and eagerness to share their experience and act as inspiration for other cities. Strong networking and the involvement of local and international stakeholders will ensure that Stockholm and other cities further their efforts and boost environmental awareness across Europe. A separate organisation will be established to monitor the communications programme as a Secretariat.
