Review: Green Week 2010
The 10th edition of Green Week, the biggest annual conference on European environment policy, took place from 1 to 4 June 2010 in Brussels. This year's theme was biodiversity.
Over some 30 sessions, the conference addressed the state of biodiversity in Europe and in the world, the pressures currently affecting biodiversity, the benefits it brings, and possible solutions to the current rates of loss. The path to be taken by biodiversity policies post-2010 and the economic dimension of biodiversity and ecosystems services were also be examined.
Green Week offered a unique opportunity for debate and exchanges of experience and best practice. Over the past decade, the conference had established itself as an unmissable event for anyone involved with protecting the environment. The 2009 edition attracted some 4,200 participants from government, business and industry, non-governmental organisations, academia and the media.
The 2010 programme and all practical information is available on the conference website:
BiK-F had been invited to be present as one of only 50 exhibitors at this year's Green Week exhibition. Themes of this exposition were LIFE projects, green business solutions, European and international bodies, NGO activities, local and regional authorities, etc.
