EU Green Week has come to an end – until next time …

An eventful week in Brussels and around Europe ended recently: the 2017 edition of EU Green Week, which was held between 29 May and 2 June

EU Green Week is the paramount European environmental policy event, and this year’s topic addressed ‘Green jobs for a Greener Future’. It focused on the positive impact of environmental policy on economic, sustainable and socially responsible growth, while also tackling the necessity of new types of green skills among stakeholders.

Once again, PRACSIS managed this year’s EU Green Week in terms of both the high-level conference in Brussels and the related activities around Europe.

PRACSIS organised the high-level conference of the EU Green Week on behalf of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for the Environment. Keynote speakers, such as Commissioner Karmenu Vella and Director-General for DG Environment, Daniel Calleja Crespo, were invited to engage with environmental experts during plenary sessions and side-events in Brussels. The event gathered as many as 800 stakeholders in Brussels to debate a wide variety of environmental initiatives, such as the LIFE programme, the 25th anniversary of the EU Ecolabel scheme, and developments in the maritime and oceanic sector.

PRACSIS oversaw the creation of the dynamic and user-friendly eugreenweek.eu website, providing relevant information on the events in Brussels. Our team offered the latest technology in terms of user-friendly website development, event registration tools, and on-site event management as well social media engagement. Live streaming and regular updates helped to provide relevant information from the main keynote speeches in Brussels in a timely manner.  Green Week also encourages local initiatives. PRACSIS recruited close to 120 partner events in Europe, showcasing good practices in green jobs and investments.
