Prague wants to be a European Green City

The competition is intended for European cities with more than 200.000 citizens. The aim is to evaluate and honour those cities, which take care of its environment. This year is the first volume.

According to councilman Petr Stepanek from the Greens, who is the one responsible for Prague environment, Prague could gain experiences with how the other big cities of Europe take care of their living space.

The winner should be known until the end of the year. The idea is not new to Prague; “… in 2006, Prague stood, with other fourteen great European cities at the spring of this idea. Today, the initiative is supported by more than 40 cities.”

The main point here is not to win the prize, but to share knowledge.
