The project "Promoting Urban Sustainable Development in Local Authorities" was funded under the Leonardo Da Vinci programme, which is a Community Vocational Training action programme under the umbrella of the Lifelong Learning Programme.
The project aimed at promoting the concept and practice of urban sustainable development through training on basic environmental issues. The project served also to encourage local authorities of the new Member States to get involved and to create their own action plans.
The main deliverable of the project was the creation of a training e-Tool focusing on four modules: Urban Sustainable Management; Urban Sustainable Transport; Urban Sustainable Construction; and Urban Sustainable Design. Local officers were trained on how to use the e-Tool.
This project was led by the Research Center – Intercollege, Unit of Environmental Studies in Cyprus. In total there were nine participant organizations from seven EU Member States. The total budget for MEPA was €43,000, of which 75% was provided by the Leonardo programme. The project was concluded in October 2008.
More information can be found on the project’s website.
Within MEPA, this project was coordinated by the Development Control Unit with assistance from the EU and Multilateral Affairs Unit.
