More than 800 participants will discuss the two main themes for the Conference: Sustainable management of water and water-related ecosystems; and Greening the economy: mainstreaming the environment into economic development
From governments and international organizations to businesses and NGOs, the “Environment for Europe” partners and stakeholders will work together under a common moto - “Save Water, Grow Green!”. The Declaration to be approved by the ministers of environment will become a pledge for action to bring the conference discussions and outcomes into reality.

• Europe’s Environment – An Assessment of Assessments prepared under the leadership of the European Environment Agency (EEA) and
• Second Assessment of Transboundary Rivers, Lakes and Groundwaters developed under the auspices of the UNECE Convention on the Protection and Use of Transboundary Watercourses and International Lakes (Water Convention) –
provide the decision and policy makes with food for thought, as well as stimulate further action by Governments, the international community, including donors, NGOs and other partners.
