Stockholm is Europe’s first Green Capital


News

March 11, 2009/11.01


We were delighted to hear that Stockholm has been named the first European Green Capital by the European Commission.
   Stockholm is one of our favourite cities, and even though it never got congested compared to many European cities, the forward-thinking Swedes still implemented a congestion charge. The city has integrated environmental issues into its budget and operational planning. Some 90 per cent of the population live less than 300 m from green areas that improve the local quality of life, bringing recreation, water purification, noise reduction, and an enhancement of biodiversity and ecology. The city can boast a 25 per cent reduction in per capita carbon dioxide emissions since 1990.
   Below are scenes of Stockholm, comments from Deputy Mayor Ulla Hamilton on the naming of Stockholm as the Europe’s Green Capital of 2010, and everyday Stockholmers talking about their city.
