ENO Green Cities Network

– Joining schools and local administration around the world

ENO Green Cities Network was launched in March 2012. It’s an integrated approach on sustainable city networks as it’s based on educational co-operation between schools, the private sector and city administration promoting a circular green economy and opportunities to connect to the world, in a concrete way.

The role of world cities* is important to reach the goals of environmental education in schools. That is why ENO Green Cities Network was established in the first place. It’s a network of cities, where schools for example plant trees in parks, establish forested areas within or around the cities and engage in other environmental activities promoting sustainable development together with the city administration.


By being part of the ENO Green Cities Network the cities will enjoy following benefits:

  • Be invited with other world cities in the ENO Green Cities Network events (online or physical)

  • City’s will get awards (ENO green star) based on competitions that will be chosen by a named jury.
