Valencia inaugurates its role as European Green Capital 2024 this week with an extensive sustainability programme. The programme comprises nearly 400 actions over 12 months, with inaugural events scheduled for this Thursday and Friday. The Mayoress, María José Catalá, emphasised that the capital should not be limited to 366 days of activities, but be a catalyst to accelerate the green transition in all municipal actions, leaving a lasting legacy in the city.
The management of this project is carried out in a cross-cutting manner by the Mayor’s Office, in recognition of decades of work, taking advantage of the city’s privileged position between the sea and the countryside. The Councillor for Tourism and Innovation, Paula Llobet, stresses that this opportunity allows Valencia to lead the green and digital transition that Europe is experiencing.
The inaugural event, which will take place at the Palau de la Música, will mark the official start of a year full of environmental commitments, with expert sessions addressing crucial issues such as green infrastructure, biodiversity, sustainable mobility and sustainable food, consolidating Valencia as a benchmark in sustainability for other European cities.
