Helsinki is a ICLEI GreenClimateCities (GCC) Europe Ambassadors. The GCC Europe Program is based on the global GCC methodology, but was custom-made for the European context. This comprehensive program was developed for local governments in Europe for integrated climate change mitigation and adaptation planning. As GCC Europe Ambassador Cities, Helsinki and Bologna committed to test the program, provide feedback, and represent GCC Europe in their country and globally. They help facilitate links and provide support to other local governments wishing to use the GCC methodology to create a global community and network of peers.
