Spirit of Sevilla at the occasion of the 5th European Sustainable Cities and Towns Conference In Sevilla, at the 5th European Sustainable Cities and Towns Conference, more than 1500 representatives gathered marking a major milestone in urban sustainable development – “the Spirit of Sevilla”.

Spirit of Sevilla Three years after the Aalborg Conference in 2004 local governments and delegates from European countries and beyond discussed and took stock of and reaffirmed their strong commitment to the sustainable development process, in the dynamic City of Sevilla. The challenge and need is clear for all of us, and from now onwards, there is an ever stronger mandate to implement sustainable development and the Aalborg Commitments in local governments.

Spirit of Sevilla The Sevilla conference has enthusiastically promoted the Aalborg Commitment process. Supporting guidance is available, tools have been developed and a powerful network of local governments and associations exists to support and encourage cities and local authorities in their valuable work for implementing the Aalborg Commitments through effective sustainable development actions.

Spirit of Sevilla During the 5th European Sustainable Cities and Towns Conference in Sevilla, Spain we were able to see concrete, motivating and inspiring examples of successful implementation of the Aalborg Commitments among local governments.
