EU Green Week

13-17 May 2019

Environmental laws have a huge impact on our life. They improve water and air quality, they protect nature, and they encourage recycling and waste management. But to really make an appreciable difference, these EU laws have to be properly implemented.

The next edition of EU Green Week 2019 will put this process of environmental implementation into the spotlight. We'll be asking questions like – do these laws really matter, and what the added benefits are for citizens? What does successful implementation look like? Why do "implementation gaps" exist? How can we move from knowing that stakeholders need to take ownership of these laws to actually making it happen? And most importantly, how can the EU facilitate the process, making sure that citizens' voices are heard?  

EU Green Week 2019 will include events across Europe, with the official opening event on 13 May in one of the Member States and a high-level summit in Brussels from 15 to 17 May. The opening event will have a particular prominence, setting the tone for the Week's debates. The closing of Green Week will take place at the end of the Brussels Conference and will showcase the political conclusions from the Week.

The call for proposals for Partner Events is now online.

Policy planning in urban freight is a topic since more than 40 years. Measures, restrictions, controls, safety are some of the tools used by local administrations in order to answer to urgent issues, like as pollution, congestion and traffic conflicts. Thanks to the introduction of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans, local administrations must face the traffic problems from a new perspective. In this context, logistics has a central role as it is the life blood of the commercial activities in the cities.

International Lynx Day

In this day, presentation, excursion, quizzes and more events take place in Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Slovenia and Italia.

The Eurasian lynx is a highly endangered species, protected under national laws and the EU Habitat Directive. The main threats for lynx survival are illegal killing, happening due to lack of acceptance by key stakeholders and habitat fragmentation hindering migration. In addition, non-harmonised (national) monitoring and management hamper a coordinated approach. The challenge is to integrate lynx monitoring, conservation and management into a common strategy on transnational level.
