Limerick - European
Green Leaf City 2020
Limerick was 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 developed a number of environmentally positive projects, which, it is hoped, will leave a legacy for Limerick and its people.
While our original plans had to change because of Covid-19 restrictions, we still delieverd a programme of exciting and engaging events to raise awareness and build capacity around environmental issues. In particular we hosted a wide ranging programme of webinar events on environmental topics such as biodiversity, waste reduction, climate change, rivers and sustainable living. These online events are available to watch on the Limerick EGLA2020 YouTube Channel. This year allowed Limerick an opportunity to really contribute to becoming more sustainable. Be part of the journey!
