Green Infrastructure enables nature to deliver a variety of benefits to ecosystems and people, including for jobs, growth, health and quality of life. Many success cases show the value of investing in Green Infrastructure. This conference is co-organised by the European Commission (DG ENV), the EESC and the CoR in cooperation with European Parliaments intergroups.
Commissioner Karmenu Vella will present progress in the European Commission's Green Infrastructure strategy. Members of both Committees, policy makers, businesses, civil society and authorities will contribute with their views. It will also present best practices on how local and regional authorities as well as participative planning processes can boost the social, economic and environmental benefits from Green Infrastructure to European citizens.
