#EUGreenWeek 2019: Register your Partner Event

Logo EU Green Week 2019

The 2019 edition of Europe's biggest annual environment conference will take place from 13 to 17 May 2019, focusing on the implementation of EU environmental legislation, highlighting the benefit of EU environmental policies and showing their benefits for citizens. Throughout the week, the question "how can the EU facilitate the process, making sure that citizens' voices are heard?" will be in the spotlight.

In order to mobilise involvement and contribution from all sectors, in addition to the high-level conference in Brussels organised by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Environment, a series of events organised by partner organisations from across Europe will also be part of the programme.

An EU Green Week Partner Event is an event that will take place in the month around the actual Green Week, so from 13 April until 9 June 2019, and where the topic of the event is based on the EU Green Week 2019 theme. Partner Events can be organised as new initiatives or as part of already planned events.

All kinds of events are welcome, from workshops and public discussions to awareness-raising events for families. Activities can take place at all levels (local, regional, national or European level).

Please note that this does not mean that the event has to focus exclusively on laws and policies. Your event could highlight, for example, what your environmental actions have achieved, their positive impacts on people, cities, nature, businesses and so forth. It could raise awareness of the findings of the EIR report for your country or present solutions that have been found to encourage improvements in situations where implementation was historically problematic. An event might highlight the sharing of best practices, capacity building or peer-to-peer learning and voluntary schemes. It could look at the need to embed sustainability in other policy areas such as agriculture, transport, the energy sector and so on. It might even focus on a perceived need for better governance, or on how citizens could be better involved. Or indeed, it could be forward-looking and examine how the next generation thinks we should look after our environment.

The Partner Events will be selected from eligible applications that must be submitted before 15 March 2019.
