17th European Forum on Eco-Innovation

1 December, 2014 — 2 December, 2014

Transforming jobs and skills for a resource efficient, inclusive and circular economy


The 17th European Forum on Eco-innovation will be held in Lyon, France, on 1 and 2 December 2014. The Forum will examine employment opportunities and challenges arising from the transition to a green and circular economy. These will be presented through the lens of the stakeholders: worker associations, businesses, citizens and city authorities. The event will also identify and showcase eco-innovative solutions that can facilitate the up-skilling for green jobs and the greening of the labour market.


The event is jointly organised by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Environment and the French Ministry for the Ecology, the Sustainable Development and Energy with the support of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Rhône-Alpes.


The Forum will be accompanied by a special event: the Ceremony of the European Business Awards for the Environment.
