Promoting green growth will be a priority for the Danish government during its six-month presidency of the EU. But other environmental issues, including rules on genetically modified (GM) crops, will also be tackled. The project RECO Baltic 21 Tech is running a workshop on waste management in the Baltic, to be held in Copenhagen on 07 May 2012.
