As Belgium is one of the countries in Europe active on reducing pesticide use in public places, PAN Europe has increased its efforts with Belgian NGOs (Velt, Inter-Environment Bruxelles, Greenpeace, Natagora, Adalia, Gestion Differenciée, and Apis Bruoc Sella) and ICLEI (local governments for sustainability) to co-organising a conference in Brussels on 8 June, the first day of National Organic Week.
While the main aim of this conference is to encourage exchange between local municipalities from Wallonia, Flanders and Brussels regions, it also hopes to ensure a dialogue and exchange involving NGOs and citizens.
The conference – sign up here – will take place in English, French and Dutch.
