The aim of the competition is to bring together local communities and professions raising questions and offering answers. The manifold cooperation allows municipalities to analyse the situation in the fields the competition explores and at the same time significantly contributes to the formation of an overview how local communities adjust to change in the ecological and economical area.
Again this year Ljubljana was triumphant in the urban municipality category with the justification stating, among other things, that this year’s race for the title was especially close and so the title Planet Earth Friendly Municipality is so much more deserved.
