UBC Sustainability eBulletin 1/2015

Welcome to the UBC Sustainability eBulletin!

You are just reading the first issue of our new electronic eBulletin!
There is a lot going on in our commission at the moment and I would like to invite you to take a moment and get acquainted with all the news.
As member cities you know this already:
Fresh winds are blowing in our organization and many things are renewed. Since beginning of March 2015 we are now officially the UBC Sustainable Cities Commission, formed out of the former Commissions of Environment, Energy and Transport. Restructuring and renewal will be a main task for us during the upcoming months and we invite all member cities to actively participate in this. This is a task that we look forward to and we hope it will result in better services and improved cooperation among UBC cities.

We also would like to herewith invite you to our upcoming commission meeting in Turku, Finland!

Currently we are busy preparing full applications for several funding programmes. We have more than ten projects applications on our tables together with many our member cities. The work so far has been successful and we have received positive feedback from funders and partners. Here you can read more in what we are involved in!

With this new quarterly eBulletin we would like to enhance our communication with you: bring to you fast information on what is going on and make it possible for you to participate in our activities!

We are happy to receive feedback from you either through email  or our Social media channels.

Happy reading and have a nice spring,

Björn Grönholm and the Secretariat
