Women promoting the Environmental Pillar of the Lisbon Strategy and the EU
WECF has finished the project "Eco-efficiency and sustainable development; Women promoting the environmental pillar of the Lisbon Strategy and the EU SDS".This project is based on our belief that competitiveness is in the long term unthinkable when it is not based on a healthy environment and a healthy population.
Our goal is to bring women into this debate, through making the link between environmental pollution, the environmental burden of disease and their effects on Europe's competitiveness. Therefore, in this project WECF wants to engage citizens, particularly women, in the debate on how to advocate with convincing arguments to incorporate the SDS and protection of environment and health as overarching goals to economic competitiveness in the Lisbon strategy.
This project is financed by the Netherlands Ministry of Housing, Spacial Planning and the Environment (VROM IMZ)
