For the good of Prague and its inhabitants; on behalf of the success of the European agenda; for the need to be a model and a driving force; in reason of a changed context that makes everything even more necessary. The capital of the Czech Republic looks to the future, a future made up of green spaces and sustainability. Zdeněk Hřib is crystal clear about this: there is no going back. In the interview given to Eunews, the Mayor of Prague talked about the green transition of his city, a true challenge to be won.

"I believe that cities are absolutely vital for the implementation of the European Green Deal and need direct EU funding. One of the priorities of the Czech Presidency is to strengthen the voice of regions and cities in the EU and make it easier for regions and cities to secure EU funding to speed up the transition towards fair, sustainable and secure energy. Therefore, I am very optimistic. The cities have shown the readiness of the local authorities to take the lead in climate action and implement ambitious action plans for a sustainable future,” said Hřib.
