ICLEI Europe hoping to launch Agenda+

ICLEI’s European Secretariat is planning to launch Agenda+, a network for advanced local governments.

The Agenda+ network will aim to bring together local governments from across Europe that have advanced Local Agenda 21 processes and have established environmental management systems, and now want to move towards an integrated, cyclical sustainability management and governance approach.

Access to the network will be given according to a set of selection critieria, which include:
  • Documented experiences with governance processes for sustainability, e.g. Local Agenda 21, local sustainability strategy, etc.
  • Documented experiences with environmental management systems, e.g. EMAS, ecoBudget, etc.; and
  • Sufficient organizational capacity to manage local sustainability, e.g. coordination unit, sustainability centre, etc.
