UBC Sustainability Survey 2009

Dear UBC Contact Person,

Union of the Baltic Cities invites your city to participate in a survey to monitor the sustainable development of UBC member cities. This survey is a one of the only in the region as it covers more than 100 cities across 10 countries in the Baltic Sea Region. It is a great opportunity to evaluate how the quality of life in your city compares to that in other cities in the same region.

The survey is an integral part of our common UBC Agenda 21 Action Programme 2004 - 2009 - The Roadmap for Sustainable Baltic Cities. The sustainability of cities will be monitored three times during this six-year period. The first evaluation took place in 2004-2005 the second in 2006-2007 and now the third is at hand. This survey is joint survey together with Åbo Akademi University and Södertörn Högskola and their project RISKGOV funded by the Baltic Sea Region BONUS programme (Baltic Organisations Network for Funding Science EEIG, see http://www.bonusportal.org/).

The survey includes several parts of sustainable development and is also including questions about important general trends in near future as well as specific needs of your city administration. The questionnaire is built upon indicators related to the Agenda 21 Action Programme 2004-2009 and also all the themes of the Aalborg Commitments. We would like to clarify that the information will be handled confidentially. 

We kindly ask You to be the person who will be responsible in coordinating the completion of the survey in your city as agreed in the telephone. The whole survey includes different parts and can therefore be divided and answered by several persons in your city. Please note that more detailed information and guidance to fill in the survey you will find from the attached annex.

Please return the filled in survey latest by June 8 2009 to: tim.ng@turku.fi or UBC Commission on Environment and Sustainable Development Secretariat, Vanha Suurtori 7, FIN - 20500 Turku, Finland.

If you have any questions about the survey, do not hesitate to contact Mr. Björn Grönholm at UBC EnvCom Secretariat, phone +358 44 9075987 or by e-mail bjorn.gronholm@ubc.net.

Best regards,

Björn Grönholm - Head of Secretariat
