European Day of Sustainable Communities
The  is a celebration of local communities taking action for a better, more sustainable world.
It gives local communities an opportunity to join with others to showcase their work and inspire the wider public.
The European Day of Sustainable Communities was first held in 2017. That year communities and organisations from 15 countries across Europe joined in the celebrations.
In 2018 we want to grow the celebration! We invite local communities who are working to create a sustainable, resilient and inclusive Europe to organise an event to mark the day.
In 2017 the day was also marked by a conference on sustainable communities in Brussels in partnership with the European Economic and Social Committee. This year we are once again co-hosting a conference, on the theme of municipalities and community-led initiatives. It will be a blended meeting so participants can join online.
