The EU-Japan Clusters and Regions Cooperation Event

27-29 April 2020

The European Commission, the EU Japan Regional Cooperation Helpdesk and the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation jointly organise the EU-Japan Clusters and Regions/Prefectures Cooperation Event on 27-29 April 2020 in Strasbourg, France.

The event’s main objective is to support clusters, European regions and Japanese prefectures in their function of networking organisations by fostering the creation of long-term strategic partnerships between European organisations and Japanese partners. Furthermore, by gathering representatives from networking organisations, regions and prefectures, the event is a unique and novel opportunity for clusters to promote business by taking advantage of the recently enforced EU and Japan's Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), the recently signed EU-Japan Strategic Partnership Agreement (SPA) and the Sustainable Connectivity Partnership. Hence, the event especially welcomes cluster organisations that bring their regional representative with them and have articulated interest in cooperation with Japanese counterparts.

MaGICLandscapes Final Conference & Green Infrastructure Symposium

Over the last two and half years, 10 project partners from 5 countries in the Interreg Central Europe project MaGICLandscapes have been intensively researching the functionality of Green Infrastructure in the urban and rural context. An integrated network of functioning green spaces is the basic recipe for resilient cities and regions with regard to the effects of climate change, such as extreme weather conditions and biodiversity loss.

The results of the project and the tools developed will be presented at the Final Conference on 27th May 2020 at the Technische Universität Dresden. The content will include transnational and regional studies on the spatial analysis of green infrastructure in central Europe, its ecological functionality and its ecosystem services and potential. In 9 study regions, the project partners will demonstrate how selected elements of green infrastructure function locally and what public benefits they can provide. They make recommendations on how existing green elements could be enhanced, where there is a need for new green infrastructure and how GI elements could be linked. In the afternoon there will be the opportunity to view the documentary films produced during the project that reflect on the human relationships with green infrastructure from across the five participating countries.

On the International Green Infrastructure Symposium on 28th May 2020 speakers from science and practice from all over Europe will meet to reflect on green infrastructure and its services from a variety of perspectives. They also share their experience of the practical implementation of green infrastructure, addressing issues such as stakeholder involvement, policy implications and funding. The symposium will discuss and identify opportunities and challenges for a wider inter-sectoral recognition of the concept of Green Infrastructure and its benefits and its adoption in policy and planning at the European, national and regional level.

EU Green Week

1-5 June 2020

EU Green Week 2020 will focus on nature and biodiversity. All around the globe, biodiversity is disappearing as a result of unsustainable human activities. This loss is closely connected to climate change, and the combined effect of this unprecedented crisis is disrupting the ecosystems that support life on Earth, with devastating consequences for human well-being and prosperity. While the situation is extremely serious, there is still hope. Solutions exist, but they require deep and transformative changes in the way we produce, consume and trade.

EU Green Week will explore possible pathways for change, and examine how a range of EU policies like the European Green Deal can help protect, restore and sustainably manage nature, leaving it room to recover and thrive. This year’s Green Week will act as a milestone on the path to the COP 15 conference in Kunming, China, in October 2020, where world leaders will adopt a new 10-year action plan for biodiversity – a new global deal for people and nature.

2020 will be a landmark year. EU Green Week 2020 is your opportunity to meet up with people at the heart of the process.
