The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Environment is launching a call for Partner Events to be organised around Europe and beyond during EU Green Week, from Monday 30 May to Sunday 5 June 2022.
Partner Events are not bound to any format or style – it is up to their organisers to decide what suits their target audience best. The European Commission welcomes workshops, webinars, public debates, guided walks, awareness-raising events, exhibitions, social club activities as well as other possible set-ups. Partner Events can be organised in person, online or as hybrid events with in-person and digital elements. Whatever the format, Partner Events should be organised, ideally, in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner.
The EU Green Week Partner Events are not organized by the European Commission. Any views expressed by the organizers, speakers or participants in those events are their own and should not be regarded as official views of the European Commission.
Partner Events must be related to this year’s theme, EU Green Deal – Make It Real, which covers a wide range of topics and sectors, from industry and new technologies to biodiversity and climate change.
The main idea behind this is to raise awareness and involvement among a maximum number of stakeholders and anyone interested in environmental protection at local, regional and national levels.
Taking part in EU Green Week is an excellent way to show how civil society and other stakeholders are playing an active role in furthering Europe's transition to a greener future. In addition, Partner Event organisers can benefit from enhanced visibility through exposure on the European Commission’s social media channels, using a tailor-made EU Green Week 2022 digital toolkit and other incentives.
It is important to remember that the European Commission maintains rigorous standards on greenwashing. Any event that is deemed to promote greenwashing will not be approved for partnership and promotion. The same applies to any events that give misleading information or a false impression of the extent to which products or services are environmentally sound. Moreover, Partner Events must not serve as a platform for commercial or profit-oriented purposes.
