The city of Lappeenranta is the finalist in the European Green Leaf Award for 2021. The European Green Leaf Award is an annual competition organised by the European Commission for cities of less than 100,000 residents with exemplary and progressive climate policy and actions. Lappeenranta is a pioneer city in renewable energy and clean environment with passionate problem-solving at its forte.
Last year we were in the final, as well, but did not win the award. We have learned from it and have invested more for green actions and in this year’s competition. During the summer the competition has been part of the city view, and we have actively promoted it in social media. The finale of the 2021 Green Leaf competition takes place on 7 October 2020, and the winner will be announced on the following day, 8 October.
Please help us win the award!
