Welcome to the New
Sustainable Cities Bulletin

Dear UBC colleagues! Welcome to the new Sustainable Cities Bulletin that will from now on replace the older e-Bulletin of the UBC SCC Secretariat. Let us introduce it and note the changes.

As you could have noticed straight from the beginning, we have finally said goodbye to the prefix e- in the title for an obvious reason: the electronic basis of this newsletter is hard to argue with. We think that electronic letters are a good, sustainable and quick way of sharing interesting and important information with our member cities.

The Sustainable Cities Bulletin will remain issued four times throughout a year in the form of these letters. As before, it will include articles about life and work of the UBC Commissions and the UBC member cities, updates on the projects of the UBC Sustainable Cities Commission, and a range of events for the cities to participate in.
