Ursula von der Leyen (President of the European Commission) described the European Green Deal as "Europe's man-on-the-moon moment". With this plan, the European Union aims to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, protect and enhance nature, and sustainably transform the European economy and society. But what exactly is the European Green Deal, and what role does it play for young people and future generations?
On 21 November 2022, Ecologic Institute kick-started a new webinar series for young people in Europe. Participants entered the dialogue with the webinar hosts Ewa Iwaszuk and Aaron Best from Ecologic Institute and their expert guests Adam Wallin from We Don’t Have Time and Stefan De Keersmaecker, Coordinating Spokesperson for the European Green Deal from the European Commission to discuss what the European Green Deal means for young people in Europe.
