The CoR seeks to ensure that EU environment policies take account of the needs of all types of communities both in urban and in non-urban areas.

Some examples of the environmental issues that are faced by small communities in the EU:

How can an urban neighbourhood near an airport implement the EU noise policy?

How can a small island deal with waste management?

How can a mountain village be involved in the management of Natura 2000?

How can a rural hamlet deal with strong air pollution originating from a nearby city?

How can a small community without elected representatives be involved in environmental assessments?

How can a small community without a specific municipality be involved in EU funded projects?

The CoR can find ways to highlight the importance of environmental policy at this level in the activities of EU institutions and networks and to promote best practices of sustainable small communities.
