Karl Falkenberg in Ljubljana

Karl Falkenberg in Ljubljana

On Saturday, 14 May 2016, as part of the tour connecting previous green capitals and Ljubljana, Karl Falkenberg and his team arrived on bicycles. In front of the City Hall he was welcomed by Mayor Zoran Janković and Deputy Mayor Tjaša Ficko.

Ljubljana as this year’s European Green Capital held a special place on Falkenberg’s charitable tour. Namely, Karl Falkenberg used the opportunity to donate funds he had raised during his tour to the association Zeleni pristan bringing together supporters of nature, culture and healthy lifestyle and all who want to preserve the significance, purpose and image of the Path of Memories and Comradeship. 

Just as a reminder, Karl Falkenberg was the Director-General for Environment in the European Commission and the president of the expert jury that made the decision to award the title European Green Capital 2016 to Ljubljana; currently he is serving as a Senior Advisor for sustainable development in the European Political Strategy Centre within the European Commission.
