EU Green Week 2019 puts the process of environmental implementation into the spotlight. Environmental laws have a huge impact on our life. They improve water and air quality, they protect nature, and they encourage recycling and waste management. But to really make an appreciable difference, these EU laws have to be properly implemented.
Interesting questions such as – What does successful implementation look like? Why do “implementation gaps” exist? How can we move from knowing that stakeholders need to take ownership of these laws to actually making it happen? How can the EU facilitate the process, making sure that citizens’ voices are heard? – will be asked.
The official opening event is on 13 May in one of the Member States and a high-level summit in Brussels from 15 to 17 May. The opening event will have a particular prominence, setting the tone for the Week’s debates. The closing of Green Week will take place at the end of the Brussels Conference and will showcase the political conclusions from the Week.
