European Green Cities (EGC) is a non-profit network of municipalities, social housing organizations, institutions, companies, universities, etc., founded in 1996, interested in actively participating in EU proposals and projects. We work to contribute to the development of green cities and buildings in a sustainable Europe.
We work with the 17 UN goals for sustainable development and implement them in the form of practical projects in cities and on buildings. The projects include the optimisation and development of energy efficiency, energy production, mobility, health, education, fair democracy, recycling management, job creation, gender equality, smart grids, climate adaptation and biodiversity. Concrete examples and current projects can be found here
We also organise study trips. You can use the network to book study trips to member cities. In Denmark, we arrange study trips to Copenhagen, Aarhus or Avedöre Green City, for example, on topics such as "recycling in the construction sector" or "transformation of an urban area", e.g. in the case of the old Carlsberg brewery.
