28 views

Stavros Dimas, Member of the EC in charge of Environment, and Ladislav Miko, Czech Minister for the Environment and President in office of the Council, launched the Green Week Conference 2009. Now in its ninth year, the Green Week conference and associated exhibition has established itself as a major annual forum for dialogue and for sharing experience, expertise and best practice in protecting the environment. Green Week brings together participants from different levels of government, international institutions, business, non-governmental organisations and the scientific and academic communities. The objective is to discuss the most effective ways to protect and improve Europe's environment for current and future generations. The event was open to all participants free of charge. Green Week 2009 looked at climate change under four headings: EU climate change policies; the international dimension; living with climate change; and '2050 vision: a carbon-free society.' The programme comprised 36 conference sessions, some organised in partnership with the Brussels think-tank Friends of Europe, plus a small number of additional side sessions. The broad spectrum of issues that has been covered included implementation of the EU climate and energy package, the impact of climate change on employment and social cohesion, how biodiversity can adapt to climate change, 'greening' the economy, the challenge for agriculture, the international security dimension and latest developments in carbon capture and storage.
