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?
If you are a student or young person in Europe (18-35) interested in environmental issues or European policy, who would like to understand the European Green Deal, then you have come to the right place! As part of the podcast “Green Deal – Big Deal?”, Ecologic Institute is kick-starting a new webinar series for young people in Europe. Enter the dialogue with us and our invited experts. We are keen to hear your questions, suggestions and ideas and discuss them together.
Our first Green Deal – Big Deal webinar will take place on 21 November from 17:00 to 18:30 CET. Join 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 from the European Commission to discuss what the European Green Deal means for young people in Europe.
