EU Green Week 2020, 19-20 October 2020 - Nature and Biodiversity

After the adoption of a new EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 in May, Green Week highlighted the contribution biodiversity can make to society and the economy, and the role it can play in supporting and stimulating recovery in a post-pandemic world, bringing jobs and sustainable growth.

The new strategy shows how the recovery is an opportunity for a fresh start, in the knowledge that transformative change is possible. It’s a chance to rethink our relationship with nature, to change the activities that are driving biodiversity loss and the wider ecological crisis, and to weigh up the implications for our economy and society. EU Green Week examined how EU policies such as the European Green Deal can help protect and restore nature, leaving it room to recover and thrive.

This year’s Green Week also acted as a milestone on the path to the Conference of the Parties (COP 15) to the Convention on Biological Diversity, now planned for 2021, where world leaders will adopt a 10-year action plan for biodiversity – a new global deal for people and nature.
