Green Week 2008
Only one Earth - don't waste it!
Besides the problems of climate change, the scarcity of our planet's natural resources and pollution, mankind is faced with equally pressing challenges related to production, consumption and waste disposal. Many people are unaware of the speed at which we are using up our natural resources, and that we are producing waste far faster than it can be turned back into a useful resource.
Green Week 2008 is taking a closer look at the sustainable use of natural resources, focusing on waste management, sustainable consumption and production. The event is providing a unique opportunity for debate, exchanges of experience and best practice among non-governmental organisations, businesses, various levels of government and the public.
The JRC is contributing to the exhibition by displaying its research activities in the energy field, mainly via a stand focusing on the activities of the Institute for Energy, which provides scientific and technical support for the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of community policies related to energy.
