The Green Cities Europe Award is an initiative of the European Nurserystock Association (ENA) together with nursery organisations in 13 European countries united in the international program Green Cities Europe. In this program, 13 European countries work together to highlight the added value of green space in the urban environment. Each European country in this program can delegate a national project. The projects will be judged by a jury that consists of a delegated jury member from each participating country in this Award.
Participating projects must be located in the participating countries: Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, The Netherlands and Sweden.
Eligible projects are very diverse. From school grounds to business parks and from hospitals to residential areas. Characteristic of the competing projects is that indoor and/or outdoor greenery has an important added value for users and the environment. This added value can be found in various areas such as real estate value, labour productivity, biodiversity, identity, climate control, future-proofing and the health and well-being of people.
The European Green Cities Award encourages successful, ambitious, inspiring and innovative green infrastructures projects.
All inspiring projects that make optimum use of the added value of green infrastructures in the living environment can participate.
For imaging some examples:
(Participating projects need to be fully realised and put into use no more than 5 years ago.)
