Union of the Baltic Cities Sustainable Cities Commission
Union of the Baltic Cities Sustainable Cities Commission is one of the thematic Commissions of the Union of the Baltic Cities (UBC). Union of the Baltic Cities is a voluntary, proactive network mobilizing the shared potential of its member cities for democratic, economic, social, cultural and environmentally sustainable development of the Baltic Sea Region.
We at UBC Sustainable Cities Commission are responsible for the environmental and urban sustainability activities within UBC and we co-ordinate the UBC Sustainability Action Programme which is closely linked to the EU strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. We operate via development projects, member city conferences and policy meetings.
This webinar is a great opportunity for our UBC cities to both present their climate work as well as learn from what others are doing in their pursuit toward climate resilience. Climate work in two UBC cities - Tartu (Estonia) and Turku (Finland) - will be presented during the webinar.
