Limerick - European
Green Leaf City 2020
Limerick has been awarded the European Green Leaf for 2020. The European Green Leaf Award is a competition aimed at cities and towns across Europe, with populations between 20,000 and 100,000 inhabitants. The award recognises cities’ commitment to better environmental outcomes. Limerick received the European Green Leaf Award 2020, together with Mechelen in Belgium.
Throughout our European Green Leaf year, Limerick City and County Council will be taking the opportunity to develop a number of environmentally positive projects, which, it is hoped, will leave a legacy for Limerick and its people. The Council would like to call on all citizens and sectors within the city and county to engage and work collaboratively with us to get the most from this opportunity. This year allows Limerick an opportunity to really contribute to becoming more sustainable. Be part of the journey!
