National launch of the project 'Local Renewables Model Communities Network' in India
At this event, the Indian component of the project "Local Renewables Model Communities Network" began its activities with two local governments only two months after the kick-off meeting in Cape Town (South Africa).
The cities of Nagpur and Bhubaneswar were proud to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with ICLEI. They were selected from a pool of more than 20 local governments who applied to begin the work as a 'Model Community'.
More than 25 participants networked at the event, learning about the project activities and its long-term goal of expansion. Other local governments who were not selected in the first round of applications attended the events and signified their keen interest to join this exciting initiative. Partners from international and national institutions were present and re-expressed their support to the project.
