Discover UNEP in EUROPE 2017 Year in review!
The year 2017 in review gives you a flavour of what the UN Environment Programme is doing in the pan-European region. This online publication invites you on a white journey through 12 initiatives UN Environment ran this year in Europe.
UNEP hopes that some of their latest success stories will trigger your desire to work together with them for a more sustainable Europe.
2017, said Jan Dusik, Director, Europe Office, UN Environment “was the year of the third UN Environment Assembly, but also the Year of Ecology in Russia. We have stood side-by-side with citizens to protect our environment, including through securing millions of individual pledges to beat pollution, and re-connected people to nature through World Environment Day. Our engagement in Central Asia has reached a historic high, thanks to a number of new projects and our participation in the Sustainable Energy EXPO in Astana. We have also aimed to make an impact on the ground, be it through training Ukrainian journalists on green economy, rolling our sleeves up to help collect waste in the Russian Arctic, or by reducing air pollution in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We have continued to push for the environment to be a high priority at the political level, for example by supporting the G7 environment ministers’ meeting, hosting the 5th conference of the parties of the Carpathian Convention and by taking part in numerous high-level meetings on the Arctic”.
