EU-ASEAN Green Diplomacy Week 2023
15-22 October 2023
First introduced to the public in 2019, Climate Diplomacy Week has become a landmark annual event where EU Delegations and embassies of EU Member States around the world host events to foster dialogue and cooperation on climate change. Called “Green Diplomacy Week” this year, the event still aims to serve as a platform to showcase success stories and inspire further action.
In late 2022, the EU launched the Global Gateway strategy, a new global strategy to build resilient connections with the world, with sustainable connectivity and green transitions as its main two pillars. In this context, Green Diplomacy Week 2023 will also serve as an opportunity to continue to build the momentum for the new global strategy.
A series of events will be prepared online, offline and in hybrid. Events will include panel discussions, exhibitions and clean up sessions, as well as a fun walk/run/cycling event. The events will focus on engaging with ASEAN youth and public.
A total of 10 events (online, offline and hybrid will be organised by the EU Communication and Visibility for ASEAN project in cooperation with EU Delegations in ASEAN Member States, EU-ASEAN partners, communities and youth organisations in ASEAN Member States.
