Event Green Week 2007 ? Lessons from the past, challenges for the future

The signing of the Treaty of Rome on 25 March 1957 created a family of European nations which over the past fifty years have grown closer together. While maintaining their individual cultures, languages and traditions, all members of the family share a common set of values based on freedom, democracy, the rule of law, the respect for human rights, and equality. There are many achievements worth celebrating since the signing of that historic treaty 50 years ago. However, we can't just look to the past; we must look to the future and reflect on how Europe should evolve.

Green Week 2007 will take part in these celebrations and provide a forum to discuss the role Europe should play in safeguarding our environment.

Green Week will identify past successes and failures, but will also explore future challenges. We will look at what has been achieved, what could have been done better, what drives change, how lifestyles need to change, and how innovation and technology can help us achieve our goals.

Green Week 2007 will take place in its customary conference setting in the European Commission's Charlemagne building (Brussels) from 12 to 15 June. However, this year, a new feature has been added. From 3 June ? Brussels Environment Day ? to 15 June an exhibition on environmental innovation and technologies will be held in a large covered exhibition space in a public park (Parc du Cinquantenaire) near the Charlemagne building.
