Sustainability in Europe conference

CEEweb organised a conference together with the Green Budget Europe and Green Cities under the auspices of People’s Budget on 15 May in Brussels.

High level speakers like European Commission’s Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, former Environmental Commissioner Janez Potocnik and MEPs spoke about the opportunities for making Europe sustainable and stepping up its efforts on fighting climate change. Klára Hajdu presented the European NGO position on the sustainability reform of the future EU budget also reflecting on the first proposal of the European Commission published earlier in the month.

The participants of the conference could also join the statement on mainstreaming sustainability pledges into the future EU budget on the spot.
