The Environmental Conference of the Regions of Europe, known as the ENCORE Network, to be at the Basque Ecodesign Meeting 2017
On 19 September, a thematic parallel session entitled “Driving the Circular Economy and the Bioeconomy” will showcase the Circular Economy policies and projects being implemented by the European Regions belonging to the ENCORE network.
The challenges of the circular economy transcends borders. Those challenges require international cooperation. The environmental improvement of the planet that we want and desperately need requires radical behavioural and technological changes. That work will be more fruitful if it is in close cooperation with other territorial governments, which will help it to become a benchmark in the political commitments that needs to be adopted. Precisely in order to share the different activities being implemented, the ENCORE network will organise a parallel session during the Basque Ecodesign Meeting 2017. The session will be held on the first of the two days of the congress, specifically 19 September, and will last two hours. Different member regions of the network will take part in the session, when innovative policies and cutting-edge projects will be showcased that are being carried out to meet the challenges of the Circular Economy. The parallel session will be held completely in English.
There are therefore eleven different parallel sessions that will be held during the two days of the Congress, with five on the first and the other six on the second. The delegates will be able to attend two of them (one on the first day and the other on the second), given that they will be held simultaneously. You can now register for the ENCORE network parallel session using the “Register” section on the website.
The mission of the ENCORE network is for the different European regions to share their experiences and perspectives regarding climate change adaptation and mitigation, addressing, among other issues, work areas such as biodiversity, water or soil protection. This network has gained in international importance and increased its leverage in the environmental decisions made by countries of the European Union.
