Today is World Environment Day!

Munich, June 5th, 2012: The 2012 theme for World Environment Day run by UNEP is "Green Economy: Does it include you?"

The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) defines the Green Economy "as one that results in improved human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. In its simplest expression, a green economy can be thought of as one which is low carbon, resource efficient and socially inclusive." Various activities of UNEP work towards a Green Economy.

Join us on November, 27 – 28, 2012 at the World Conference Center in Bonn! At SusCon 2012 we will present, discuss and develop practical solutions and cross-sectoral activities towards a Green Economy.

SusCon 2012 – International Conference on Sustainable Business and Consumption – will bring together businesses with relevant stakeholders from government and UN organizations, and NGOs. It will take place in the UN city of Bonn, in Germany on November 27-28, 2012. The conference theme “Green Economy – from intention to action”, will emphasize the importance of business and what, in practice, constitutes a “green economy”. Up to 400 participants are expected. The previous meeting, SusCon 2010, gathered together 300 business, political, NGO and media representatives from 28 countries. For more information, please visit www.suscon.net.
