The European Environment Agency (EEA) is an EU decentralised agency based in Copenhagen, Denmark. For the 3rd year in a row, the EEA will participate in Copenhagen Culture night, on 10 October 2008. This is the annual event in Copenhagen where cultural institutions and lots of other organisations open their doors to the public, offering a wide range of activities.

This year’s EEA programme will focus on sustainable consumption and production. Our building located in Kongens Nytorv 6, in the heart of the Danish capital, will be filled with activities from 15.45 and continuing throughout the evening. This event is mostly targeting families. The more “serious” part of the evening programme will be a panel debate on how our food choices have impacts on the environment.
