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.
