EU Green Week 2018 : helping cities to become better places to live and work

EU Green Week 2018 starts next week with the theme of helping cities to become better places to live and work.

Showcasing policy developments on air quality, noise, nature and biodiversity, waste and water management, Green Week 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. The week will officially open on 21/5 in Utrecht, Netherlands with a Citizens’ dialogue with Commissioner Vella.  The Citizens’ Dialogue will take place at several locations in the city of Utrecht: Hof van Cartesius, The Griftpark, Botanical Gardens and on an electric bus travelling between these destinations. The high level EU Green Cities Summit will take place in Brussels, 22-24/5 and the week will close on 25/5 in Madrid. In addition, the programme also features events organised by partners around Europe, taking place from the end of April until mid-May.
