EGCA background

The European Green Capital Award (EGCA) is one of the policy tools the European Commission uses to address the many urban environmental challenges today. This award recognises and rewards local efforts to improve the environment, the economy and the quality of life in cities. The EGCA is given each year to a city, which is leading the way in environmentally friendly urban living and which can thus act as a role-model to inspire other cities.
