Yesterday, on the 8th of October, European Commission in Lisbon announced who will be European Green Capital 2022. The winner was a city of Grenoble in France.
„We would like to
congratulate Grenoble for winning the title of European Green
Capital 2022! They definitely have very interesting plans, and
we will follow the implementation of their program and ideas
with great empathy. Also we would like to say a big thank you
to our co-finalists and to the jury, “ said The Mayor of
Tallinn, Mihhail Kõlvart.
The Mayor added that Tallinn is actually a winner as well by
being part of this competition and being one of the finalists
this year. “Already the fact that Tallinn was nominated as one
of the finalists in spring, has given us a push to give a sense
to the city's green revolution, make the city organisations
greener and take a number of new initiatives. Despite the fact
that we did not win this time, Tallinn will definitely continue
with the ideas and plans we brought to life in the journey on
becoming a European Green Capital 2022, he added.
The Mayor also said a big thank you to his team, who has been
doing a great job and thinking green ideas for several months
now. “Tallinn will not give up its aspiration to become the
Green Capital,” said Kõlvart.
