European Green Capital Secretariat opens call for sustainability experts

The European Commission is seeking six experts in the field of sustainability to join the Expert Panel for the European Green Capital Award and the European Green Leaf Award.

Members of the Expert Panel are responsible for the technical review of the European Green Capital and European Green Leaf Awards, which forms part of a two-stage competition process.

European Green Capital Award applicant cities are assessed by an internationally independent panel of experts based on 12 environmental indicators. European Green Leaf Award applicants are evaluated based on six environmental topic areas.

Specifically, experts are being sought in the areas of: climate change mitigation, climate change adaptation, air quality, water, green growth and eco-innovation, and governance.

Members of the expert panel will be expected to respond to queries from applicant cities through the European Green Capital Secretariat, assess indicator areas, prepare technical comments for reporting purposes, attend three evaluation meetings, and review the application form text related to the indicators.

The closing date for receipt of applications is Friday 1 September 2017.
