EU Green Week is our annual opportunity to embrace European environmental policy. Organised by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Environment, this key event in the environment policy calendar attracts policymakers, leading environmentalists, and all interested citizens from Europe and from all over the world.

EU Green Week 2019 take place from 13 to 17 May with the theme of ‘Applying Environmental Legislation’. Environmental laws have a huge impact on our life. They improve water and air quality, they protect nature, and they encourage recycling and waste management.

Today, environmental policy is one of the most important achievements of European integration. Europe is home to the largest coordinated network of protected areas in the world. It largely manages to protect endangered species and habitats, restore ecosystems and achieve more sustainable agriculture, fisheries and forestry.

The Via Pontica Foundation is proud to hold top positions in the political sphere of the environment in Bulgaria. This is evidenced by the certificate signed by Mr. Carmen Vela – Commissioner for the Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries of the EC for participation in the EU Green Week 2019.

The Via Pontica Foundation’s team is determined to continue with doubled efforts to contribute to more efficient and effective protection of the environment, to stop the loss of biodiversity and to improve the status of the species, habitats and ecosystems in Bulgaria.
