From 31 May to 4 June the 2021 EU Green Week edition will take place and will be based on the theme "Zero Pollution for healthier people and planet", that will build on the EU Action Plan toward a Zero Pollution Ambition which is scheduled for spring 2021. As a part of the EU Green Week, a series of events will be organized by partner organizations from 3 May until 13 June 2021.
The call to become a partner and organize one of these events is open until 15th April.

What is a Partner Event?

An EU Green Week Partner Event is an event that will take place in the month around the actual Green Week, so from 3 May until 13 June 2021, and where the topic of the event is based on the EU Green Week 2021 theme. Partner Events can be organised as new initiatives or as part of already planned events. This year’s theme links with many issues, such as industry, chemicals, energy, mobility, agriculture and fisheries, biodiversity or climate, among many others. Events can explore a wide range of questions, including: how does pollution affect our health and well-being, how to achieve zero pollution production and consumption, the need to address the existing pollution legacy, how to establish integrated measuring and tracking of pollution to steer the change or how can we work together to create the zero pollution transformation.
