- EEB Annual Conference 2016 - Save the date!
This year the EEB’s Annual Conference will be hosted by our Austrian member Umweltdachverband in Vienna, on Monday 26 September 2016.
After the adoption last year of the global 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the historic Paris climate deal, 2016 must be a year of delivery. This means the systematic implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals through the adoption of a Sustainable Development Strategy that will help the EU move away from firefighting to solving its major challenges in a coherent, holistic, sustainable manner. It also means concrete progress in developing and implementing policies to limit climate change, protect biodiversity, green agriculture, promote a genuine circular economy and eliminate environmentally harmful subsidies.
Organized together with EEB Austrian member Umweltdachverband, the EEB’s 2016 Annual Conference will debate how policies can and should be delivered to tackle these challenges, with a particular focus on climate and energy, biodiversity and the circular economy.
We invite you to join us in Vienna on 26 September 2016, together with high-level speakers from the EU institutions, academia and civil society, to exchange ideas and opinions and discuss concrete solutions to some of the main environmental questions facing Europe and the world.
The full programme and online registrations will be available closer to the conference at www.eebconference.eu

- Actions for Nature Save the Date
The EU's target of halting biodiversity loss by 2020 remains a serious challenge. Europe's biodiversity continues to be seriously eroded through habitat loss, pollution, over-exploitation of resources, invasive alien species and climate change.
But it doesn't have to be this way.
Our Actions for Nature conference on 14 September 2016 will show how targeted, well-crafted and well-enforced policies can start to turn this around.
Join us and engage in a much needed debate on the enforcement and implementation of EU nature laws, ways to tackle the drivers of biodiversity loss and methods for scaling up financing to manage and restore Natura 2000 sites.
Only by working together can we reach the 2020 target.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 14 September!
