Green Week and the circular economy

Jun 2, 2014 | News

(02 June 2014) – Green Week will wade into the economic debate this year. Under the banner “Circular economy – saving resources, creating jobs” the 3000 participants will discuss how Europe must move from its current linear economic model towards a more circular one. AEIDL is participating as LIFE’s Communications Team.

The conference aims to show that the logical solution for Europe in a resource-constrained world is a more circular economy where almost nothing is wasted, the re-use and remanufacturing of products has become standard practice, and sustainability is built into the fabric of society.

The Week opens with a summit on “New Environmentalism”, bringing together celebrities, thinkers, activists, entrepreneurs, leaders and film makers to discuss why green thinking has still not broken through into the mainstream of social discourse.

Green Week offers a unique opportunity for debate and exchanges of experience and best practice. Organisations and companies will showcase best practices at a 40-stand exhibition, and side events include test drives of electric cars.

The 14th edition of Green Week, the biggest annual conference on European environment policy, will take place from 3 to 5 June 2013 at The Egg Conference Centre, 175 Rue Bara, Brussels. Attendance is free and the public is welcome.
