European Green Week
Next week will be Green Week in Europe, the European Commission's annual conference and exhibition event, 30 May to 2 June. The major threat to species and biological diversity will be the subject of this year's Green Week.
Green Week is a massive international event, with up to 4000 participants expected. This year will be marked the signing of a "Declaration of European Principles for the Environment" by the European Investment Bank and four other European multilateral development banks.
In a very full programme, events will include the announcement of this year's environment awards for businesses, local authorities, and schools, and mobility awards, for sustainable transport.
