Blue-Green Summit V

Conservatives are natural conservationists

On the 14th November 2019, in Brussels the European Conservatives and Reformists Party will be organising a one day seminar looking at how we can best improve our environment using market mechanisms; the innovation & entrepreneurship that comes from capitalism, and the natural sense of stewardship and trusteeship that is part of Burkean conservatism.  Alongside governmental initiatives it is vital that conservatives promote both corporate and individual responsibility in environmental issues. Environmentalism, and the world we live in, are altogether too important to be left to the left.

This will be the fifth Blue Green Summit that ECR Party is organising in two years, and on this occasion we will dedicate specific sessions to:

·         Managing Deforestation and Rewilding, and

·         Delivering a Sustainable and Clean Energy Mix with special emphasis on waste-to-energy sector innovation and developments   

Representatives from global industries including from Malaysia, Brazil, and Indonesia, as well as European Green Innovators and investors will attend this event alongside European politicians, policy makers and thought leaders, to discuss environmental challenges and how to better address them.
