2019 European Green Capital: Oslo aims to inspire
Norwegian capital city Oslo officially began its year as the 2019 European Green Capital on Friday.
Raymond Johansen, Governing Mayor of Oslo, said: “We are very proud to officially become the 2019 European Green Capital. Combatting and adapting to climate change is the greatest challenge of our time and it can’t be left to someone else, at another time, in another place. In 2019, we want to invite the world to Oslo – to share and to learn together. We aim to use our European Green Capital year to spread knowledge, inspire and mobilise our citizens and businesses to make more environmentally friendly choices.”
