On 3 March, being World Wildlife Day, the Delegation of the European Union through an open call invited all municipalities to take part in a competition for Greenest Municipality. The call offered an opportunity for municipalities to showcase their best examples of solid waste management in 2021, thus contributing towards environmental protection. The call remained open for a month, during which period eight municipalities presented their flagship activities of 2021. Of these, one was selected the Greenest Municipality in 2021. The award will be handed over Ambassador David Geer, Head of Delegation of the European Union on the occasion of the conference.
The Evaluation Board recognized Prilep as a municipality that best demonstrated the environmental practice in the field of waste management in 2021. Ambassador David Gere had the honor to present the award for “Greenest Municipality 2021” to Mayor Jovceski on June 6, 2022 in Prilep.
