EU Green Week 2020 is now scheduled for 20-22 October 2020
On the theme of nature and biodiversity. It will highlight the contribution biodiversity makes to society and the economy, and the role it can play in supporting and stimulating recovery in a post-pandemic world, bringing jobs and sustainable growth. The recovery is an opportunity for a fresh start, in the knowledge that transformative change is possible. It’s a chance to rethink our relationship with nature, to reconsider the activities that are driving biodiversity loss and the wider ecological crisis, and to weigh up the implications for our economy and society. EU Green Week will examine how EU policies such as the European Green Deal can help protect and restore nature, leaving it room to recover and thrive. This year’s Green Week will also act as a milestone on the path to the Conference of the Parties (COP 15) to the Convention on Biological Diversity, now planned for 2021, where world leaders will adopt a 10-year action plan for biodiversity – a new global deal for people and nature.
Coronavirus - COVID-19
“Our principal priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of our speakers, moderators, exhibitors and participants, and so we have been monitoring the situation concerning the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak constantly. Due to the current situation and the uncertainties about how long it may continue, it has been decided that EU Green Week 2020 will not take place in June as originally foreseen. A decision on whether to postpone, restructure or cancel the event will be taken as soon as possible. More information will be published as soon as it is available.”
No EU Green Week in June. We are in contact with the organization and will continue to follow-up the official website.
We will also keep you permanently informed of the opportunities that the future still offers us for the EU Green Week in 2020. Who knows where can we put our living green...
In this difficult global COVID-19 outbreak, we need to work together more than ever. Take care of your health, that of your family, colleagues and environment.
The economic health of our companies is also important in this Corona crisis. So success and the very best with the new entrepreneurship.
All around the globe, biodiversity is disappearing as a result of unsustainable human activities. This loss is closely connected to climate change, and the combined effect of this unprecedented crisis is disrupting the ecosystems that support life on Earth and provide vital services to our society. It has devastating consequences for human health and well-being. While the situation is extremely serious, there is still hope. Solutions exist, but they require deep and transformative changes in the way we produce, consume and trade.
EU Green Week will put the spotlight on biodiversity, in the context of this broader ecological crisis. It will call for urgent action, explore possible pathways for change, and examine how a range of EU policies like the European Green Deal can help protect, restore and sustainably manage nature, leaving room for it to recover and thrive.
The programme of the EU Green Week conference in Brussels will include a series of sessions dedicated to the evaluation of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020. Emerging findings from the evaluation support study will be shared, giving the stakeholder community an opportunity to react, share views and experiences, and to discuss the achievements, factors of success, barriers to implementation as well as progress towards the targets. This input will be taken into consideration in the finalisation of the evaluation support study.
