from our special correspondant in Nantes, our publisher Miguel D. DESNERCK
The Eco-City world summit opens today in Nantes (France).
Nantes is this year the European Green Capital for the whole european union. This title was awarded to Nantes two years ago as a city which made many efforts to contribute to a zero-emission, sustainable and green city.
Today, Nantes hosts a very important world summit with the contribution of UN Habitat and the PNUE.
Responsibles of lots of world cities gather for three day to draw the lines of a new sustainability policy for the next generation. Meetings, discussions and informal get together will help shaping new policy initiatives to contribute to better liveable cities with in their mind sustainability, green policies and exchanges between the inhabitants.
We come back on this very important summit.
