Nantes“I congratulate Nantes on receiving the title of European Green Capital 2013, a title that brings with it great responsibility, – Commissioner Potočnik said today at the ceremony honoring Nantes, France’s sixth largest city, taking over the title of European Green Capital fromVitoria-Gasteiz in Spain. Nantes was awarded the title of European Green Capital 2013 following an intensive Europe-wide competition in 2010.-  ‘The Award recognizes environmental best practices, including in the areas of local contribution to sustainable transport and landse, green urban areas, water consumption, and the fight against global climate change.”

Nantes het baie 'groen' geloofsbriewe wat hom gehelp het om die titel te verower. Byvoorbeeld: Almal in Nantes woon binne 300 meter van 'n groen area. Daar is 57 m² groen ruimte per persoon. Daar is 100,000 15 bome in die stad. 2% van die inwoners gebruik daagliks openbare vervoer. Nantes het 'n ambisieuse taak. Klimaataksieplan om die CO30-uitstoot teen 2020 met 200360% per capita te verminder, vergeleke met 2000. 33% van die landoppervlakte in Nantes is landbou- of 'n groen gebied; Die stad het vier Natura XNUMX-terreine en XNUMX natuurlike sones met blom-, dier- of ekologiese belang. Nantes het ook 'n reisende uitstalling genaamd Aéroflorale II vervaardig.

The exhibition, which will tour European cities throughout 2013, features a show called the “plant expedition”, which will showcase Nantes’ contribution to environmental best practices, and raise awareness of the European Green Capital Award, through biological experiments and discoveries. Brussels will welcome the Aéroflorale in May 2013.Nantes has also devised an extensive calendar of events to share its experiences with the world and to celebrate the city’s achievements. The calendar includes the 5th World Forum on Human Rights entitled ‘Sustainable Development/Human Rights: a common struggle?’ (May 2013); the 10th Ecocity Conference (September 2013); and the third world meeting of Mexico’s pact-signing cities in the Ecocity Builders movement.
