Date: Monday 16 May 2016

Time: 5.00pm – 7.00pm

The event is held in conjunction with the European Union’s ‘Green Week 2016’, the biggest annual occasion to debate and discuss European environment policy. The 2016 edition of Green Week will focus on the theme “Investing for a greener future”. Investing is about more than money. It’s about creating jobs and taking people out of unemployment. It’s about ensuring our children breathe cleaner air on their way to school, it’s about using raw materials and resources more efficiently, it’s about preventing waste, and much more besides.
