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. 2018 theme will be 'Green Cities for a Greener Future', covering three themes in particular:
- Quality of life: nature/biodiversity, green infrastructure, air quality, mobility, noise, water (in particular drinking water), and links to health etc.
- Circular economy: waste, recycling, energy solutions, construction, business opportunities/SMEs, investments, and access to EU funds etc.
- Governance: community engagement and participatory approaches to urban planning, exchanges of best practices, as well as measuring and monitoring progress.
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.
In addition to participating in the Green Week events, you can apply to organise a partner event (application deadline 28 February).
Partner events should be linked to the Green Week themes and take place between 21 April and 10 June 2018. All kinds of events are welcome, from workshops and public discussions to awareness-raising events for families. Activities can take place at all levels (local, regional, national or European level).
