The EU Green Week 2021 took place from 31 May to 4 June 2021, with Partner Events taking place between 3 May to 13 June 2021. With a high-level policy conference in Brussels and partner events around Europe, the EU Green Week is the biggest annual event which focuses on European environmental policy. Organised by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Environment, the annual event attracts high-level policymakers, leading environmentalists, stakeholders, and citizens from all over Europe.

This year’s edition tied in with the adoption of the EU Action Plan 'Towards a Zero Pollution Ambition for Air, Water and Soil'. The EU Action Plan is a key action of the European Green Deal scheduled for spring 2021. It will help to create a toxic-free environment across the EU by better monitoring, reporting, and by preventing and remedying pollution from air, water, soil, and consumer products.

Arctik supported the European Commission in promoting and coordinating Partner Events to organise numerous activities at local, national, and European level with a purpose of showcasing their achievements and contribution towards a zero pollution Europe.

This year the call saw nearly 600 events, an all-time record with a 130% increase since 2020!  Partner Events were organised across 44 countries involving over 80,000 participants in workshops and webinars focusing on the zero-pollution ambition.

As part of our Partner Events Secretariat management, our team managed queries, coordinated visibility actions, organised thematic webinars, and produced a series of videos.
