The EU is looking for partner organisations from across Europe to organise partner events during the EU Green Week, which will take place between 21 and 25 May 2018. The EU wants, in addition to the high level conference in Brussels organised by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Environment, to mobilise involvement and contribution from all sectors.
What is a Partner Event?
An EU Green Week Partner Event is an event taking place in the month leading up to the actual Week, so from 21 April until 10 June 2018, where the topic is based on the EU Green Week 2018 theme, which is 'Green Cities for a greener future'. Partner Events can be organised as new initiatives or as part of already planned events.
All kinds of events are welcome, from workshops and public discussions to awareness-raising events for families. Activities can take place at all levels (local, regional, national or European level). Listed below are most typical examples, although other types of events can also be considered:
- Information, education or awareness-raising events;
- Open Doors Days, Info Days;
- Guided tours and visits;
- Seminars, workshops and conferences;
- Training and networking events;
- Exhibitions and fairs, festivals;
- Online events, such as webinars.
The Partner Events will be selected from eligible applications that need to be submitted before the deadline, which is 28 February 2018 and must be relevant to the theme.
Who can be involved?
Any organisation can take part, such as municipal authorities, authorities in charge of the environment, businesses, associations, private companies, NGOs, research institutes, universities and technical colleges, media, groups of citizens, stakeholders in other sectors (transport, water, air quality, tourism, education, agriculture, sustainable businesses), and so on.
