- EEB Annual Conference 2016
Registrations are now open for the EEB’s Annual Conference that will be organized together with EEB 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 and the coming years must be years of delivery. This means agreeing a strategy that will ensure the systematic implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and move the EU away from firefighting to solving major challenges.
The EEB conference will be one of the first opportunities for those concerned about the environment across Europe to come together and take stock of the developments after the UK referendum on EU membership and its implications for the environment and sustainability. We will debate how the EU needs to now embark on an agenda of transformational change that puts the interests of people and planet first.
Within this framework, the conference will dig deeper into three issues that are high on the agenda this autumn, namely Climate and Energy, Biodiversity and Circular Economy.
Confirmed speakers include the Austrian Federal Minister for the Environment Andrä Rupprechter, Ann Mettler, Head of the European Political Strategy Centre at the European Commission and Petros Fassoulas, Secretary General of European Movement International.

- 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!
