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 Saturday 3 June to Sunday 11 June 2023. Every year hundreds of organisations decide to join this big festival dedicated to promoting, debating and enjoying European environmental policies.
This year, Partner Events should be on the topics of skills for sustainable, resilient and socially fair communities. Their objective should be to raise awareness and contribute to the public debate around this very actual topic. They may target the general public or specific stakeholder groups.
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 organised by the European Commission. Any views expressed by the organisers, speakers or participants in those events are their own and should not be regarded as official views of the European Commission.

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 2023 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.
