Harnessing the European Green Deal to Address the Climate Crisis – Think2030 Conference
On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, Ecologic Institute, together with the Institute for European Environmental Policy and TMG, is hosting this year's Think2030 conference "Harnessing the European Green Deal to Address the Climate Crisis: Anticipating Risks, Fostering Resilience". The outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic has instigated massive societal and economic disruptions, pressing policymakers and experts to think broadly, act quickly and remain adaptive. Now, more than ever, there is a widespread need for rapid knowledge sharing and the development of effective policy responses in this new and changing context.
In the context of the acute crisis posed by the pandemic, the conference will focus on the European Green Deal, and the related developments in EU policy and their potential contributions to address climate change. The conference will create a much-needed space for a science-, policy- and action-oriented discussion of climate-related policy issues that bridges disciplines, sectors and thematic siloes. The conference will bring together leading experts from across Europe to exchange their ideas on what we can do now and in the coming years to secure our shared future.
This year's Think2030 conference is organised as an idea lab and will take place online. Further information on the agenda and the speakers can be found on the conference website.
The event receives financial support under the LIFE Programme of the European Union and the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) of the Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
