Green Cities for a Greener Future

21/05/2018 @ 09:00 – 25/05/2018 @ 20:30

The next edition of EU Green Week will explore ways in which the EU is helping cities to become better places to live and work. Showcasing policy developments on air quality, noise, waste and water management, it will promote participatory approaches to urban development, networking schemes, and tools for sharing best practices, engaging local authorities and citizens, and encouraging them to share their vision of a sustainable future.

EU Green Week 2018 will include events across Europe, a high level conference in Brussels from 22-24 May 2018, and Opening and Closing events (21 and 25 May) to take place in the Member States. These High Level Opening and Closing events will have a particular prominence, setting the tone for the week’s debates, and showcasing political conclusions at the end.
