About Green Week 2016

The 2016 edition of Green Week, the biggest annual occasion to debate and discuss European environment policy, will take place from Monday, 30 May to Friday, 3 June. It will focus on the theme "Investing for a greener future".

On Monday we look at how investing for greener cities can improve the quality of urban life. On Tuesday we explore ways of securing our future through investments in the countryside, which provides so many of the resources that our society needs. Wednesday focuses on finding the financing for our needs, and Thursday then looks at investing in our oceans. Friday widens the scope to a more global outlook, namely investing in sustainable development for future generations.

Partner Events take place throughout May and June.
