Copenhagen Declaration: towards a European genuine renaissance

According to a recent Press release by the Committee of Regions (CoR),  Mayors and Presidents of regions from all EU Member States have adopted the “Copenhagen Declaration”. This declaration is intended to make cities greener, more socially inclusive and more economically competitive, in line with various core issues to be discussed at  Rio+20 Earth Summit.
Notably, Mercedes Bresso, the president of CoR, said that [...] In the face of climate change and overconsumption of natural resources, […] towns and cities are in the front line for driving sustainable development […] these thus hold the key to a European genuine renaissance”.
Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Prime Minister of Denmark and President-in-office of the EU Council,  was nothing but clear in her closing remarks: “In this context of crisis, can Europe really afford the transition towards a green economy? […] it would be a big mistake to leave it […]No, Europe cannot afford not to discuss green growth.”
