Conference in Brussels 10-12 Oct. 2012

Friends of the Earth Europe organised an international conference in Brussels. 38 shale gas campaigners from various countries gathered to give an update on the shale gas and fracking situation in their countries. Representatives from Scotland, UK, Northern Ireland, Ireland, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Romania, Poland, Bulgaria, Australia and the EU shared their concerns and experiences with (the threat of) hydraulic fracturing. Time was also allocated to meet our MEP’s. It was a very fruitful and inspiring conference. Thanks to all for the organisation.
