Towards new city co-coperation

In the editorial, Björn Grönholm, head of UBC Commission on Environment Secretariat, highlights the key elements for building more sustainable, modern and attractive cities and the Baltic Sea Region

The feature story stresses the sharing of information and co-operation at all levels. The city articles from Umeå, Aalborg, Kaunas, Karlstad, Tartu, Panevezys, St Petersburg, Keila and Rakvere provide us with more insight on how the cities have co-operated with different stakeholders on variety of topics. Furthermore, the Bulletin includes actions and methods from several UBC Commission on Environment projects. The special pages for the Commission on Energy focus on the triple-helix approach.
