A group of young professionals at the start of their environmental careers have set up a networking group for environmental interns in Brussels. The aim of the network is to provide an arena to share contacts and pool resources between NGO, Parliament and Commission interns who work specifically in the field of environment. Though only formed in March, already the group has grown into an active network of over 100 young people representing the many states of the EU and has organised several successful events such as a Green Drinks Networking Evening.

On May 2nd the ‘Brussels Environment Interns’  network group invited current DG Environment Commissioner Janez Potočnik to talk about his vision for Europe in 2030.
