LJUBLJANA AWARD EUROPEAN GREEN CAPITAL 2016


Ljubljana will receive the European Green Capital Award at a ceremony to be held on February 9, 2016. The solemn act of official award ceremony will be held at the Museum of Musical Instruments in Brussels.

This annual event marks the transfer of title from a European city to another and this year Ljubljana (Slovenia) picks up the baton from the city of Bristol (UK).

Since 2010, the European Green Capital Award has rewarded cities developing green urban policies; policies that make cities more livable, attract investment, create new jobs and growth.

The new European Green Capital, Ljubljana will act as an ambassador for sustainable urban development sharing the best practices and encouraging other European cities to become greener. Ljubljana also will dedicate each month of 2016 to a different environmental issues, including air, waste, transportation, water, to name a few.

The Prize is great value for Ljubljana, and because it places Ljubiana in the European and global map as a sustainable cities, and the first and only city in Central and suboriental Europe receiving this prestigious title in Europe.

The ceremony will also highlight the achievements made by Bristol as European Green Capital 2015 and will feature the involvement of the European Environment Commissioner, Karmenu Vella, along with the mayors of Ljubljana and Bristol.

GREEN CITY
Ljubljana was awarded the title of European Green Capital 2016 on 24th June 2014. The award was presented by EU Environment Commissioner, Janez Potočnik, at a ceremony in Copenhagen, which holds the 2014 European Green Capital title.

This achievement has been obtained after many efforts of Ljubljana over the past decade to create environmental awareness among citizens, the sustainability strategy of the city "Ljubljana Vision 2025", the creation and restoration of a wide range of urban green spaces and significant improvements in its transport network.

The city has lots of green areas in her ancient area and the vicinity. Miklošičev Park is Art Nouveau style, created in 1902; Zoo in Ronik hill where you can see many animals from all continents, the Botanic Garden, created in 1810, which includes a collection of more than 4,500 species of plants, both native and from other continents, the Arboretum, which occupies 80 hectares including meadows, lakes and forests, and has more than 4,500 nurseries cultivation, Argentina park in the center of the city, and the most famous of all, the Tivoli Park.

As the first European capital to define Zero Waste Strategy, Ljubiana has achieved one of the highest standards in waste collection and waste reduction.

Today, 63 percent of the city’s waste is collected through separation and sorting. That’s a ten-fold increase over a decade ago—from 16 kg of sorted waste per resident per year to 145 kg. These improvements are thanks to upgraded infrastructure throughout the city and committed public outreach.

Ljubljana has installed a network of underground collection units—53 locations in all—that reduce the hassle of sorting waste, help keep streets clean, reduce noise from collection, eliminate unpleasant odor, and discourage vandalism.

The city has also gone great lengths to promote the concept of responsible consumption through public communication campaigns that emphasize reuse and sharing. The idea seems to be catching on: Ljubljana now boasts a thriving secondhand market, as the popularity of its Reuse Centre.

"GREEN YEAR"
The Slovenia capital has designed a complete program of activities to do throughout this year, organized by public institutions in the city, businesses, schools and NGOs. Ljubljana district communities also participate actively, each acting as a green ambassador for a period of three weeks throughout the year.

The first green ambassador is the district community Črnuče, followed in chronological order by Šmarna gora, Vič, Center, Golovec, Moste, Jarše, Posavje, Rudnik, Rožnik, Šentvid, Bežigrad, Trnovo, Polje, Dravlje, Šiška and Sostro.

Ljubljana dedicate each month of its "Green Year" to a different environmental issue:

  • January: SMART WASTE MANAGEMENT
  • February: LOCAL SELF-SUFFICIENCY
  • March: RESPONSIBLE WATER MANAGEMENT
  • April: QUALITY OF THE ACOUSTIC ENVIRONMENT
  • May: GREEN AREAS
  • June: ENERGY EFFICIENCY
  • July: BIODIVERSITY AND BEES
  • August: SUSTAINABLE TOURISM
  • September: SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY AND QUALITY OF AIR
  • October: WOOD – NATURE’S INVALUABLE GIFT
  • November: CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTION
  • December: ECO-INNOVATIONS, GREEN JOBS AND SUSTAINABLE LOCAL MANAGEMENT

Finally note that Ljubljana, European Green Capital 2016, is also the first European capital on the way to a society without waste. | More information: www.ljubljana.si | greenljubljana.com |
