Green Week

Green Week, 24th-27th May 2011, Brussels, Belgium

Green Week, the biggest annual conference on European environment policy, will take place from 24 to 27 May 2011 in Brussels and around Europe. This year’s theme is “Resource Efficiency – Using less, living better”.

Over 40 sessions, the conference will address the problem of resource depletion and scarcity, and the challenges and opportunities presented by constraints on resources. The conference will also showcase public and private strategies that are promoting a shift towards lower carbon use and a more efficient use of resources.

These challenges are those faced by European Cities on a daily basis, and our 2011 Winner- Hamburg will also be present during Green Week to demonstrate the innovative and sustainable ways in which cities can tackle them.

Green Week offers a unique opportunity for debate and exchanges of experience and best practice. Over the past decade, the conference has established itself as an unmissable event for anyone involved with protecting Europe’s environment. The 2010 edition attracted some 3 400 participants from government, business and industry, non-governmental organisations, academia and the media.

Green Week is open to the public and participation is free of charge. This is the 11th Green Week.
