REC establishes partnership with ICLEI

March 21, 2009

Gino van Begin, regional director for Europe of ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability, and Marta Szigeti Bonifert, executive director of the Regional Environmental Center for Central and Eastern Europe (REC), signed a memorandum of understanding between the two international organisations on March 22 during the Fifth European Conference on Sustainable Cities and Towns in Seville, Spain.

This milestone signing offers a framework for expanding further cooperation in pursuit of sustainable local development in countries where both organisations operate. It is particularly relevant in the context of engaging citizens and stakeholders to ensure progress in local sustainability through supporting and spreading the Aalborg Commitment process.
