2009 will be a critical year in the battle against climate change, with negotiations on a global agreement to succeed the Kyoto Protocol due to conclude at the Copenhagen climate conference in December.

Against this backdrop, the EU is using Green Week — the largest annual conference on European environment policy — to turn the spotlight on the multi-faceted challenges of climate change. Starting today in Brussels, Green Week is examining the prospects for 'climate-proofing' the world's economies against the impacts of present and future climate change and creating a carbon-free society by 2050.

The European Environment Agency has a stand at the conference and is contributing several experts to the three-day discussion between high-level speakers from Europe and beyond. Some 3 500 participants are expected at Green Week — from EU institutions, business and industry, non-governmental organisations, public authorities, the scientific community and academia.
