Nature works for people, the economy

Nature can provide answers to many societal and environmental challenges the European Union faces today and we will show real-life examples to prove that! We are pleased to announce the How can People and the Economy benefit from Nature? Stories from Citizensconference in Brussels on June 7th 2017.

This event will present examples on how nature can provide answers to many societal and environmental challenges the European Union faces today.  Citizens coming from different sectors will share their personal experiences about living and working in Natura 2000 sites, and we will showcase successful products from this area accompanied by inspiring background stories about the collaborations and the related socio-economic benefits.

“How can People and the Economy benefit from Nature? Stories from Citizens” conference will bring together around 150 participants: members of the European Parliament, representatives of the European Commission, the European Council, scientific community, civil society, private sector and other relevant stakeholders.
