EU Green Week
Jun 6 @ 10:00 – Jun 7 @ 18:00

Come and debate European environmental policy with policymakers, leading environmentalists, and stakeholders from Europe and beyond at EU Green Week 2023.

Join the conference on 6 – 7 June to hear the latest from the world of the EU environmental policies, and in particular on biodiversity, circular economy, and zero pollution. It’s an opportunity to celebrate the progress already made whilst inspiring individuals, communities and organisations to take further action to protect and restore our environment for present and future generations.

Throughout the week, partner events organised by schools, universities, business associations, environmental organisations, civil society, and government agencies will take place across Europe and beyond. These will raise awareness and educate people about the importance of protecting the environment and promoting sustainable living practices. They will include a variety of activities such as educational workshops, seminars, and eco-friendly projects highlighting the importance of “green” skills – skills which will empower people to join and contribute to the green transition.

The call for partner events is open!
