All these topics go in hand with the aims of Energy Equilibrium project, thus during the conference, Romualdas Petraitis presented the Lithuanian National Network of Green Municipalities and the Energy Equilibrium project, which is being implemented by the Lithuanian Energy Institute in cooperation with the Tauragė Municipality.

“It is very encouraging when sustainability initiatives come from active people and communities, but it is also important that city leaders support these initiatives. It is wonderful that the active and proactive people of Tauragė have managed to get their city included in the list of 100 climate neutral and smart cities in Europe. From today’s conference, I realized that both the city of Tauragė and their leaders are very lucky for each other.” – R. Petraitis, Coordinator of the Green Municipalities Network, shared his impressions after the conference.
