On July 18-20th 34 participants from 14 cities and 8 European cultural organisations attended a EUROCITIES study visit in Leeuwarden, European Capital of Culture 2018, focusing on greening cultural events and on how culture drives innovation, socio-economic change and sustainability.

Participants shared knowledge and learned from a mix of on-site visits, interviews with local stakeholders and workshops with colleagues from all over Europe. The programme of Leeuwarden- European Capital of Culture 2018 successfully combines culture, ecology and social inclusion. Biodiversity, regional partnerships and innovation in festivals were at the forefront of the visit on Friday where participants were invited to visit the eco-friendly festival Welcome To the Village.
