Transatlantic Outreach – Ecologic Institute US
With a shared history and cultural heritage, Europe and the United States have traditionally held similar views on a wide range of global challenges. Increasingly, however, perceptions of the role and scope of policies to preserve the environment have differed across the Atlantic, threatening to undermine the strength of this alliance. As both sides explore different approaches to environmental leadership and innovation, increased dialogue and knowledge transfer offer useful opportunities to strengthen the transatlantic partnership. With the emergence of new powers and a redefined geopolitical landscape, moreover, strong cooperation between Europe and the United States will become increasingly important going forward. By convening experts and fostering an informed debate, the Ecologic Institute promotes a closer transatlantic exchange and helps further a shared vision of a sustainable and prosperous future.
