Join UBC Commission on Environment activities
The UBC Commission on Environment (EnvCom) aims at spurring the Unions’ currently 108 member cities on continuous dialogue on how to make the Baltic Sea Region more sustainable. Increasing exchange of information either by meeting colleagues from other cities or learning from each other through variety of UBC projects are some of the practical ways of helping the member cities in their work towards sustainability.
Twice a year organized Commission on Environment meetings, hosted by a member city, are the best places to meet to discuss the current issues or bring up ideas, for example, for new projects. In addition to the cities these meetings are attended by representatives of other cooperation partners of the UBC Commission on Environment.
In order to spread the good practices and other environmental news from the member cities the UBC Commission on Environment publishes the Baltic Cities Environmental Bulletin. This twice-a-year published bulletin together with this website and the commission meetings are the main channels of communication of the Commission on Environment.
The next meeting will be UBC Joint Commission meeting in the City of Tallinn 10–12 April 2013.
The last meeting was held 9-11 May 2012 in Halmstad, Sweden with the topic: “Revitalize the city for sustainability” - Joint seminar of the UBC Commissions on Urban Planning, Environment, Energy and Transport
