Environment Ireland, now in its eighth year, is Ireland’s major annual conference on environmental policy and management. The theme of this year’s conference is ‘The environment and the economy’ and speakers will examine the contribution the environment sector can make to economic recovery, and the importance of Ireland’s clean, green, environment in a number of growth industries including tourism and agriculture.
Other key issues addressed in the programme will include waste management, planning, environmental regulation, water reform, transport and climate change. These issues will be explored through an expert panel of local and visiting speakers.
EnvironmentIrelandprovides an important opportunity for all the key players in the environment sector to come together for networking and discussion. Away from the formal conference sessions, there is ample opportunity for delegates to meet and do business in the margins of the conference, particularly in the lively exhibition area and during the many networking breaks scheduled throughout the conference programme.
The conference is organised in association with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government and is attended each year by delegates representing all the main sectors with an interest inIreland’s environment, including many from Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
