Commission’s Green Week 2009 focuses on climate change

The biggest annual conference on European environment policy is just around the corner, this year it will focus on the multi-faceted challenges of climate change. The European Commission’s Green Week will be held on the 23rd-26th of June in Brussels.

With the global climate summit in December looming, this year’s Green Week - named Climate change: act and adapt - will focus on the challenges of reaching a new global deal to control climate change.

Over the course of the three days, through ongoing discussion and debate between high-level speakers from Europe and beyond, Green Week 2009 aims to examine routes to a carbon-free society by 2050 and how actions to address climate change can best serve conservation of the ecosystems that support life on Earth.

Last year saw some 3,500 participants from EU institutions, business and industry, non-governmental organisations, public authorities, the scientific community and academia – this year looks set to be even larger.


Over the course of the three days Green Week 2009’s conference timetable will focus on the following four themes: > EU climate policies, > International dimension, > Living with climate change and, > 2050 Vision: a carbon-free society. There will be eight sessions on each theme – all of which will be streamed live on the Green Week site. The conference will be held in the Charlemagne Building, Brussels.


Alongside the conferences and also taking place also in the Charlemagne building, there will be an exhibition of projects, green business solutions, NGO activities, local and regional authorities, European and international bodies.


Registration is now open for events of Green Week 2009 – you can do this either online or in person in the Charlemagne Building, Brussels.

If you can’t come all the way to Brussels, don’t worry, all the debates will be streamed live on the Green Week site
