Green Infrastructure Conference

European Commission Conference on Green Infrastructure implementation in Brussels on November 19, 2010.

The European Commission is organizing a conference on the implementation of Green Infrastructure in Brussels on November 19, 2010. The conference is a follow-up to the March 2009 workshop "Towards a Green Infrastructure for Europe", where a specific definition was achieved for this concept, but the confirmation that the concept was widely applied for different territory elements came through. The upcoming conference is intended to further develop the implementation of the Green Infrastructure concept in the EU. Issues to be addressed in depth include identifying implementation gaps, links to the climate change agenda, and the exchange of best practices reflecting progress being made on the ground, all of the above against the backdrop of the important contribution green infrastructure can make to biodiversity and broader economic and social objectives. Moreover, the Commission will be looking for feedback on preliminary concept of Green Infrastructure, which will be presented at the Conference.
