I’m sorry about the months of silence on this blog – things have just been too busy, and I didn’t seem to be able to make the time to post.
However, I’m hoping to change that now & post more regularly!
Here’s a few relevant things that we’ve been up to in the past few months:
- Our conference on “Measuring Europe’s Resource Use: A vital tool in creating a resource efficient EU“, mentioned in a previous post, happened at the beginning of June, and was very interesting and successful. We’ve produced a full write up, and all the presentations are available, see this page on the Friends of the Earth Europe site.
- We commissioned a study of how many jobs could be created in the EU if the current recycling target of 50% would be increased to 70% – the answer being over 500,000! For more details, see the press release and the full study.
- We organised another event on resource efficiency in the European Parliament last week – the talks are now on the web, but I’ll do another post about the event soon.
