November has been a busy month for the European Parliament Intergroup on “Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development”.
The working group on “Sustainable Forest Management” kicked off its activities with a breakfast meeting in Strasbourg, at the presence of the European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development Phil Hogan.
A major event was organised to present the outcomes of the European project “Sea for Society”, which attracted over 150 participants to the European Parliament.
In this issue of the Intergroup newsletter you will be able to read the reports of these two events.
