I voted for Lappeenranta

At We Love Cities, I voted for Lappeenranta (Finland). Denmark's Copenhagen was also good, but I couldn't resist Lappeenranta's 90% renewable energy, heading towards 100%.


Cities are important for sustainability. Even though 70% of energy-related carbon emissions come from cities, they have the potential to do so much good, including public transport, and bicycle facilities, recycling programs, and efficient use of energy.


You can vote for your favourite sustainable city (up until March 27) at welovecities.org

PS. Obviously there are no Australian cities :(
