Welcome to the Green Week Conference 2009
The biggest annual conference on European environment policy turns the spotlight this year on the multi-faceted challenges of climate change.
- What are the prospects for reaching a new global deal to control climate change at the crucial Copenhagen conference in December?
- How can we best 'climate-proof' our economies against the impacts of present and future climate change?
- How can we create a carbon-free society by 2050?
- How can we ensure action to address climate change best serves conservation of the ecosystems that support life on Earth?
These are some of the many questions Green Week 2009 will be examining in three days of discussion and debate between high-level speakers from Europe and beyond.
Green Week is a unique opportunity for exchanges of experience and good practice.
Some 3,500 participants are expected from EU institutions, business and industry, non-governmental organisations, public authorities, the scientific community and academia.
