PRESS RELEASE
18 MARCH 2016

 

ENO Green Cities Network spread to Croatia, Spain and Peru

ENO Green Cities Network is  a supporting network for the ENO Programme. It differs from other green city networks as it's  based on educational co-operation between schools and  cities and sharing concrete practises for the environment between member cities.


As tree planting is the most  popular activity in the ENO Programme, the approach in ENO Green Cities is simple and easy to adapt.  In minimum, accepted cities have to offer areas, seedlings and assistance for tree planting activities of schools every year, at least once in a year. Cities take care that these areas will be safe and remain unconstructed. Cities will  get a membership in the ENO Green City Network and become official cities for ENO 100 Million Trees 2017 Campaign.  This campaign was highlighted in the overall summary of Rio+20 Summit commitments, out of over 700 pledges.

Three new cities joined  ENO Green Cities today. They come from Croatia (Krk), Spain (Ciudad Real)  and Peru (Lima- Ate). CONGRATULATIONS! Network covers now 55 cities or regencies in 22 countries.

Environment Online - ENO is a global virtual school and network for sustainable development. It has been running since 2000 and covers almost 10 000 schools in 157 countries. Tree planting has been the most popular activity in the ENO Programme. Schools aim to plant 100 million trees by 2017. ENO Headquarters lies in the city of Joensuu, Finland.
