Green Week 2014 is being organised by the European Commission's Directorate-General for the Environment. Participation is free of charge and is expected to attract several thousand participants. This annual event offers anyone involved in protecting the environment – including government, business and industry, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and academia – the opportunity for debate, and sharing experience and best practice.
Over the course of the three days, Green Week 2014’s conference timetable will include over 30 sessions. Live video streams will be available for most of the sessions on the programme. During the 4 and 5 June there will also be an exhibition with around 40 stands displaying green business solutions, NGO activities, local and regional authorities, European and international bodies. The event is endorsed by Janez Potočnik, European Commissioner for the Environment.
The Environmentalism Summit aims to draw attention to the most critical environmental issues facing the planet. Speakers will give their own ideas on how breakthroughs can be made. Green Week will also host the launch of European Green Capital Award 2017 and Award ceremony for the best LIFE Environment and Information Projects 2013.
There are also a number of satellite events taking place. These aim to raise public awareness of environmental challenges linked to the Green Week themes (for example, guided tours of recycling plants or competitions of art made of waste). Satellite events can take place all around Europe during May and June 2014.
