Greenweek 2016: "Investments for a greener future"
Investing is about more than money. It's about creating jobs and taking people out of unemployment. It's about ensuring our children breathe cleaner air on their way to school, it's about using raw materials and resources more efficiently, it's about preventing waste, and much more besides.
|Period||[30/05/2016 - 03/06/2016]|
The many facets of green investment will feature throughout the week. Events and activities will take place across Europe, centred round a high-level conference in Brussels on Wednesday 1 June, with a wide variety of organisations and partners taking part.
To show how the investments of today can help a "greener future" become a reality, each day of the week will focus on different aspects of the theme.
On Monday we look at how investing for greener cities can improve the quality of urban life. On Tuesday we explore ways of securing our future through investments in the countryside, which provides so many of the resources that our society needs. Wednesday focuses on finding the financing for our needs, and Thursday then looks at investing in our oceans. Friday widens the scope to a more global outlook, namely investing in sustainable development for future generations. Partner Events take place throughout May and June (see Partners Section for more details).
The conference programme for Wednesday and the registration system for this will be online shortly. You can find a brief outline of the current known events by clicking on "Programme" in the toolbar. Other events that are eligible as Partner Events and are relevant to the day's theme could be listed as part of the programme too; click on Partner Events for more information.
