The OECD and environmental policy – how can civil society engage? – 19 November – Online

We would like to invite you to a capacity building session to be held on 19 November, from 14:00 to 15:30 (CEST) on the work the OECD does on environmental policymaking and the engagement mechanisms for different stakeholders including environmental NGOs.
Please register here!

The interventions from OECD representatives and EEB staff will help you to better understand how the OECD works and to learn about the opportunities to engage to support the OECD on our common mission of shaping better environmental policies.

The European Environmental Bureau (EEB) coordinates the voice of environmental organisations within the OECD. We are seeking to broaden our engagement with the support of other environmental civil society organisations.
