CAMPAIGN SURVEY FOR PARTICIPANTS

2004 is a landmark year for the European Sustainable Cities and Towns Campaign. In June we will stress the continuity of the Campaign by celebrating the success of European Local Agenda 21 with a conference in Aalborg marking 10 years of the Campaign (http://www.aalborgplus10.dk).

2004 is also a year of change for the Campaign. In December the funding from the European Commission DG Environment for the Campaign ended. This provides the Campaign with the challenge of finding new sources of funding and simultaneously the opportunity to change, redefine, and strengthen the Campaign so that it continues to provide you with the best possible support.

Over the coming years the Campaign will work towards improving the environmental performance and quality of urban areas, securing a healthy living environment for Europe's citizens, reinforcing the environmental contribution to sustainable urban development while taking into account the related economic and social issues. Achieving this goal requires the continued commitment and feedback from the Campaign Participant. In order to gather this feedback we strongly encourage you to answer the following three questions:
1. What Campaign Services have you most appreciated and why?

2. What new services would you like to receive from your Campaign?

3. Would your municipality be willing to contribute financially to the Campaign in order to provide new services? If so how much? (250, 500, 1000, above 1000 EUR per year ?)

Please return your answers by e-mail to the Campaign Office (campaign.office@skynet.be) by 31st March 2004.

Thank you very much in advance for your support,

The European Sustainable Cities and Towns Campaign.


NEWS FROM THE EUROPEAN INSTITUTIONS

EU HANDBOOK FOR ENVIRONMENT PROJECT FUNDING
The Environment DG has recently published an excellent handbook on funding opportunities for local environmental projects.

This handbook is available to download from the internet in both word and PDF from the following link: http://europa.eu.int/comm/environment/funding/intro_en.htm

A section has furthermore been developed on the Environment DGs website devoted to funding opportunities. The purpose of this section is to give an overview of the current funding opportunities available from the Environment DG. Where possible links are also provided to environment related funding opportunities in other DGs of the Commission. Given their specialised nature, actions for nuclear safety have not been included.

This section can be accessed at the following link: http://europa.eu.int/comm/environment/funding/intro_en.htm

GREEN WEEK LAUNCHED
Green Week, which takes place in Brussels from 1-4 June, is an annual event organised by the European Commission’s Environment DG.

Its objective is to encourage people to "think aloud" about how citizens, businesses, policy makers, NGOs, authorities, teachers, scientists and young people can really change their environmental behaviour. It brings stakeholders and experts together to provide the Environment DG with the knowledge and input to help them develop their policies. Green Week sessions are, therefore, dedicated to focusing on concrete policy issues, ones that they sometimes have difficulty solving, but which are important for the further development of EU policy.

In addition to a conference programme Green Week also has an exhibition – with stands that feature best practices, projects and partnerships - and an 'oscar' style ceremony for the handing out of environmental awards.

Green Week is aimed at local, regional and national decision-makers, companies– multinationals as well as small and medium-sized enterprises – and associations and non-governmental organisations.

This is the fourth time that Green Week has been organised.
"Changing our behaviour: informed choices for a greener Europe"
and takes place from 1-4/6/2004 in Brussels.

For further information please go to the official Green Week 2004 Website on: http://europa.eu.int/comm/environment/greenweek/index_en.htm

EUROPEAN COMMISSION AND EEA LAUNCH FIRST EUROPE-WIDE INDUSTRIAL POLLUTION REGISTER

Recently the European Commission and the European Environment Agency launched the European Pollutant Emission Register (EPER), the first Europe-wide register of industrial emissions into air and water. The launch event took place at the EEA in Copenhagen.

EPER, which is hosted by the EEA, makes detailed information on pollution from around 10,000 large industrial facilities in the EU and Norway publicly accessible on the internet for the first time.

The public register enables European citizens to exercise their 'right to know', allowing them, for example, to see how much pollution large industries in their neighbourhoods generate and to compare this with the situation in other parts of Europe. Companies can measure themselves against their competitors. For their part, scientists, insurance companies, local authorities and policy makers now have a solid database to help them choose the most effective solutions for reducing industrial pollution.

ENERGY GLOBE AWARD

The Energy Globe Award goes to best practice projects from all over the world, which aims to protect our planet and values the four basic elements of life, namely earth, fire, water and air. These elements are inseparable and cannot be looked at in isolation, just like our environmental problems can only be solved through joint action.

Last year an incredible 972 projects from 95 countries participated in the Energy Globe Competition. On Oct. 19th, 2004 such projects are again presented to the public in a splendid Television Gala, which will be broadcasted worldwide. The Energy Globe Award is a world stage for our environment and a safe future.

No matter how big or small - any project is welcome to the Energy Globe Competition 2004. The deadline for submission is 30th June 2004.

UK SURVEY ON PLASTIC BOTTLE RECYCLING

EU SMART CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS ABSORB AND WASH AWAY POLLUTION
A European consortium of private enterprises, research institutions and the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) is running a test programme for innovative construction materials set to help in the fight against air pollution. The "smart" construction materials (plaster, mortar, architectural concrete) and coatings are being developed as part of the PICADA (Photo-catalytic Innovative Coverings Applications for De-pollution Assessment) project. Special construction materials and coatings containing titanium dioxide (TiO2) can "capture" and "munch" organic and inorganic air pollutants after they have been exposed to ultra-violet and/or sun rays. The "degraded" polluting substances can then be washed away by rainwater. The new construction materials should help to reduce levels of nitrogen oxides (NOx gases) which cause respiratory problems and trigger smog production, and of other toxic substances such as benzene. The whole project will cost ¤3.4 million and the European Commission is funding up to ¤1.9 million.
