Green Week - successful campaigns


DG Environment's main annual environmental event - Green Week - took place in Brussels from 3-6 June, with the theme - 'One world - don't waste it'.

The Green Spiders Network (GSN) had a stand at the exhibition, where some of the GSN members presented a rolling exhibition of environmental campaigns in Europe.

During the first two days, examples of best practices in national campaigns were on display, including -

  • The Planet - an interactive website about climate change
  • Drop your own - a Hungarian waste management campaign
  • Romanian activities to promote environmental education and public awareness - including their participation in the Danube day initiative
  • Notice Nature - an Irish campaign about nature conservation and biodiversity.

Visitors to the exhibition could also get an insight into the latest developments in European climate change campaigns, including -

The purpose of participating in Green Week was to share experience on environmental communication and, perhaps, lay the groundwork for future cooperation. This, it seems, has been achieved with many interested visitors during the exhibition and several inquiries afterwards.
