ENO Green Cities Network
- new cities announced today, now 10 cities

22 May 2012

ENO Green Cities Network is  a supporting network for the ENO Programme. It differs from other green city neworks as  it's   based on educational  co-operation between schools  and  cities  and sharing concrete practises for the environment between member cities.

Thousands of schools around the world plant trees today, ENO Tree Planting Day.  As tree planting is the most   popular activity in the ENO Programme,  the approach in ENO Green Cities is simple and easy to adapt.  In minimum, accepted cities have to offer areas, seedlings and assistance for tree planting activities of schools every year,  at least  once in a year.  Cities take care that these areas will  be safe and remain unconstructed. Cities will  get a membership in the ENO Green City Network and become official cities for ENO 100 Million Trees 2017 Campaign.  The first three ENO Green Cities (Ljubljana,  Cape Town and Taichung)  were announced in  March 2012.

Today , seven new cities were accepted:  São Paulo (Brasil) ,  Espoo (Finland),  Timisoara (Romania),  Iringa  (Tanzania), OKI regency (Indonesia), Rojas (Argentina) and Iligan City (The Philippines). São Paulo became the first leading ENO Green City in Latin America.
