EU Green Week 20-22 October 2020

Sunday, May 03 , 2020 1817

EU Green Week 2020 is now scheduled in Brussels, 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.

 

UEF fully supports this European Union event and will attend it in Brussels.
