Who will host an EU Green Week Partner Event?
Call for proposals is out now.
EU Green Week is the biggest annual event on the European environment policy calendar. EU Green Week 2020 will focus on nature and biodiversity. EU Green Week 2020 will take place from 1 to 5 June 2020.
An EU Green Week Partner Event is an event that will take place in the month around the actual Green Week, so from 4 May until 14 June 2020, and where the topic of the event is based on the EU Green Week 2020 theme. The aim of partner events is to demonstrate the high level of public interest in the issue and its support for taking a strong political action to solve the global biodiversity crisis
All around the globe, biodiversity is disappearing as a result of unsustainable human activities. This loss is closely connected to climate change, and the combined effect of this unprecedented crisis is disrupting the ecosystems that support life on Earth, with devastating consequences for human well-being and prosperity. While the situation is extremely serious, there is still hope. Solutions exist, but they require deep and transformative changes in the way we produce, consume and trade.
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 exhibitions to awareness-raising events for families and so on. Activities can take place at all levels (local, regional, national or European level).
Listed below are most typical examples, although other types of events could also be considered:
- Information, education or awareness-raising events;
- Open Doors Days, Info Days;
- Guided walks, tours and visits;
- Seminars, workshops and conferences;
- Training and networking events;
- Exhibitions and fairs, festivals;
- Online events, such as webinars
Partner Events will be selected from eligible applications that must be submitted before the deadline, which is 13 March 2020. There are no subsidies available. However, the European Commission will provide assistance by promoting events on their website and on social media and by providing partner events with the official EU Green Week branding (with the help of a specific toolkit).
