The green designation of the capital of Valencia for 2024 was welcomed with great joy by the members of the delegation that traveled to France and also by the rest of the councilors and guests who watched the award ceremony from the Agora located in Valencia City Hall Square.
The other city to reach the finals that competed for the title of Valencia was the Italian city of Cagliari. The Valencian capital, the new European green capital, is following in the footsteps of exemplary ecological cities such as Tallinn (Estonia), Grenoble, Lahti (Finland), Lisbon, Oslo, Nijmegen (Netherlands), Essen (Germany), Bristol (UK), Ljubljana (Slovenia), Copenhagen, Nantes, Vitoria or Hamburg. So far, only the Basque city of Vitoria, in 2012, received this award in Spain.

anyway The entire government team (Compromís and PSPV) has turned to achieve this recognitionIt was the deputy mayor, Sergey Campello, who oversaw the project from the start. In opposition, both PP and Ciudadanos supported this nomination. Only Vox voted against the initiative.
In fact, in the Valencia delegation there are representatives of all the parties that supported the initiative. To all of them, as well as to the universities and institutions that cooperated in the candidacy, the mayor, Joan Ribeau, whom Campello himself translated into English, thanked them. He also remembered all those people who once fought for a green salar river or a green river instead of a highway.
“We have worked hard to make our city a more sustainable and friendlier city, and a city more resilient in the face of climate change,” Ribo explained to the audience at Grenoble Sports Hall. Likewise, this rating “is a commitment to work towards an increasingly green city without leaving anyone behind.” “It’s a pride and a responsibility,” Repo concluded the applause from the hall and congratulations.
