27.07.2020. The EU Green Week 2020 conference will take place at “The Square” Convention Centre in Brussels from 20-22 October 2020, focusing this year on biodiversity and nature, and green recovery.
Following the adoption of a new EU biodiversity strategy for 2030 in May, Green Week will highlight the contribution that biodiversity can make to society and the economy, and the role it can play in supporting and stimulating recovery in a post-pandemic world, bringing jobs and sustainable growth. The new strategy shows how recovery is an opportunity for a new beginning, knowing that transformative change is possible. It is an opportunity to rethink our relationship with nature, to change the activities that are driving biodiversity loss and the wider ecological crisis, and to weigh the consequences for our economy and society. EU Green Week will examine how EU policies, such as the European Green Deal, can help protect and restore nature, leaving space for it to recover and thrive.
