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. UBC Sustainable Cities Commission also co-ordinates the cooperation with CDP.
In August 2021, Greifswald received the European Energy Award - a quality certificate for the sustainability of the energy and climate protection policies of municipalities.
Despite the ongoing pandemic, the UBC Sustainable Cities Commission reached several important milestones by the end of 2021. The new UBC Strategy 2022 – 2030 and the UBC Sustainability Action Programme 2022 – 2030 were adopted at the XVI UBC General Conference.
