Welcome to the Green Week Conference 2014
Circular economy – saving resources, creating jobs

 

The European Commission has adopted the Communication "Towards a circular economy: a zero waste programme for Europe" to establish a common and coherent EU framework to promote the circular economy. See here for the link: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/circular-economy/index_en.htm

The 2014 edition of Green Week, the biggest annual conference on European environment policy, will take place from 3 to 5 June at The Egg Conference Centre, Rue Bara, in Brussels.
The theme will be Circular Economy, Resource Efficiency & Waste.

A circular economy is the logical solution for a resource-constrained world. It's a place where almost nothing is wasted, where the re-use and remanufacturing of products has become standard practice, and where sustainability is built into the fabric of society. In 2014 the Commission will set out new proposals enabling Europe to unlock the potential of the circular economy, underlining the need to change our way of thinking about design. There will also be a focus on better waste management, and on how it can help the EU use its resources more efficiently.

Green Week offers a unique opportunity for debate and exchanges of experience and best practice. Over the past decade, the conference has established itself as an unmissable event for anyone involved with protecting the environment. The 2013 edition attracted some 2.100 participants from government, business and industry, non-governmental organisations, academia and the media.

The 2014 programme is available now. Just go to programme. Green Week is open to the public and participation is free of charge. Green Week also has an area for exhibitors and satellite events take place all around Europe.
