EU Green Week Opening Event in Utrecht with Erik Solheim
On Monday 21 May 2018, the city council of Utrecht and PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency are jointly organising the start of the EU Green Week in Utrecht.
In a comprehensive festival programme, you will be able to experience working together on a green and sustainable city that is to everyone’s benefit.
Come and explore the city’s nature areas during a green bicycle tour across Utrecht. Join in the debate on the sustainable future of our city, and you will be inspired in a series of workshops, documentaries and presentations on healthy urban living, held at Utrecht’s new Knoop Building and ‘Green House’ restaurant.
How do you see a green and healthy city and what could you do to contribute? Join the conversation about the future of Utrecht.
The event will be opened by speeches by:
- Karmenu Vella (European ENV Commissioner)
- Stientje van Veldhoven (State Secretary for Infrastructure and Water Management)
- Jan van Zanen (Mayor of Utrecht)
- Erik Solheim (Head of UN Environment)
