Long description: The European Common Indicators is a monitoring initiative focused on sustainability at the local level. It is a partnership of different organisations and levels working together, in a joint effort to find comparable data and a better understanding of sustainability in local communities across Europe. Ten common local sustainability indicators were identified through a bottom-up process - these are now being tested. Used in combination with other indicators and other evaluation methods, the European Common Indicators can contribute to a comprehensive local or regional monitoring strategy. Over 100 local and regional authorities have so far signed the adoption agreement and are now testing the indicators, refining the monitoring initiative based on practical experiences.
