EU Green Week takes over Brussels on 13-17 May 2019. This year's edition focuses particularly on environmental laws and the  process of environmental implementation. Environmental laws will be addressed in a broad sense, covering water and air quality, protection of nature, as well as recycling and waste management.

Questions discussed during the week include: 

  • Do these laws really matter, and what the added benefits are for citizens?
  • What does successful implementation look like?
  • Why do "implementation gaps" exist?
  • How can we move from knowing that stakeholders need to take ownership of these laws to actually making it happen?
  • How can the EU facilitate the process, making sure that citizens' voices are heard?

In addition to the high-level policy summit, a series of satellite events will be organised across Europe. 


  • The call for proposals for Partner Events is already open. Have a look at the guidelines
  • The call for applications for an exhibition stand at the Brussels Conference is open until 28 February. See also the guidelines.
  • Registration for participation at the Brussels Conference will open at the end of March 2019.
