Environmental laws have a huge impact on our life. They improve water and air quality, they protect nature, and they encourage recycling and waste management. But to really make an appreciable difference, these EU laws have to be properly implemented.

The next edition of EU Green Week (13-17 May 2019) will put this process of environmental implementation into the spotlight. We will be asking questions like – do these laws really matter, and what the added benefits are for citizens? What does successful implementation look like? Why do "implementation gaps" exist? How can we move from knowing that stakeholders need to take ownership of these laws to actually making it happen? And most importantly, how can the EU facilitate the process, making sure that citizens' voices are heard? 

EU Green Week 2019 will include events across Europe, with the official opening event on 13 May in one of the Member States and a high-level summit in Brussels from 15 to 17 May. The official opening event will have a particular prominence, setting the tone for the Week's debates. Would your organisation be interested in hosting the official opening event of EU Green Week 2019? 

The European Commission is now launching a call for proposals to select an organisation(s) that, in partnership with the European Commission, will organise this event.

You can find the guidelines and the form to submit your application here. The deadline for submission is 31 October at 17:00 (Brussels time).
