Cittaslow International Partner Event of #EUGreenWeek presents Green Photo Contest: Being a Green Citizen

"A city is not gauged by its length and width, but by the broadness of its vision and the height of its dreams." (Herb Caen)

Nowadays environmental sustainability is a worldwide priority and cities should be a model of environment protection.
