EU Green Week

1-5 June 2020

EU Green Week 2020 will focus on nature and biodiversity. All around the globe, biodiversity is disappearing as a result of unsustainable human activities. This loss is closely connected to climate change, and the combined effect of this unprecedented crisis is disrupting the ecosystems that support life on Earth, with devastating consequences for human well-being and prosperity. While the situation is extremely serious, there is still hope. Solutions exist, but they require deep and transformative changes in the way we produce, consume and trade.

EU Green Week will explore possible pathways for change, and examine how a range of EU policies like the European Green Deal can help protect, restore and sustainably manage nature, leaving it room to recover and thrive. This year’s Green Week will act as a milestone on the path to the COP 15 conference in Kunming, China, in October 2020, where world leaders will adopt a new 10-year action plan for biodiversity – a new global deal for people and nature.

2020 will be a landmark year. EU Green Week 2020 is your opportunity to meet up with people at the heart of the process.
