The 12th edition of Green Week, the biggest annual conference on European environment policy, took place from 22 to 25 May 2012 in Brussels. This year’s theme was “Water”. Over some 40 sessions, the conference focused on water. Green Week offered a unique opportunity for debate and exchanges of experience and best practice. Over the past decade, the conference has established itself as an important event for anyone involved with protecting the environment.
