Opportunity to host the 7th EcoProcura Conference

ICLEI invites its European Members to express their interest in hosting an important event on sustainable procurement:

The 7th EcoProcura conference will be held in 2008/2009, this being the 7th in a series of conferences on sustainable procurement hosted by ICLEI.

The year 2008 will mark 10 years of ICLEI's European platform, EcoProcura.  This conference then will convene practitioners and policy-makers along with members of the business community to exchange and to promote procurement of good and services in a sustainable manner.

The success of this conference series is possible only through the commitment of a city hosting these European gatherings. Many cities have seized this opportunity to advance their local policy agenda and to share their experiences with those looking to gain knowledge on
the topic. Co-organisers of the EcoProcura series in the past have included
local, regional and national governments.

We would like to invite you to consider this opportunity to host the 7th EcoProcura conference.  To request all relevant bidding documents, you are invited to contact Ms Kirsten Wolfrath at training.centre@iclei.org.
