My name is Janez Potočnik and I am the European Commissioner for Environment.
On this website you can discover by yourself or together with your friends and classmates what the environment is and what is happening to it. It focuses on four themes that I think are very important and which the European Union has decided to concentrate on for the next 10 years: air, water, waste and nature.
I hope you will enjoy this website. Don't hesitate to contact me and my colleagues at the European Commission if you have any questions on the environment.
