Eight Slovenian cities applied for the European Commission’s Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities 2030 Mission, and three of them, Ljubljana, Kranj and Velenje, have been chosen to participate in the project, featuring in total of 100 cities.

The 100 selected cities are now being invited to develop Climate City Contracts, which will include an overall plan for climate neutrality across all sectors such as energy, buildings, waste management, and transport, together with related investment plans. This process will involve citizens, research organisations, and the private sector.

This is a must opportunity for the University of Ljubljana to develop its own Sustainable Development Strategy and supports/join the efforts of the City of Ljubljana to become a carbon-neutral city by 2030.
