Protecting Europe’s economic stability and its transition to a green economy from a historic global pandemic presents several unique and challenging questions. This event will discuss how the EU can help create a society where the benefits of economic activity are equally distributed and can be reconciled with our environmental responsibilities, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
To discuss what the EU is doing to support the transition to a green economy, we are holding the next Investing in the Future of Europe event entitled The Green Deal, the Need to Invest in a Green Economy, organised by the European Movement International, in partnership with the European Investment Bank.
Following numerous events held across Europe since 2017, this discussion will be held online on Thursday, 26 November (14:00-15:00 CET).
The panel will feature :
– Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice-President, European Green Deal | European Commission
– Céline Charveriat, Executive Director | Institute for European Environmental Policy
– Thomas Östros, Vice President | European Investment Bank
– Thomas Waitz, Member of the European Parliament | European Green Party Co-Chair
Moderated by BBC journalist and presenter, Joe Lynam
After the initial discussion, online participants will have the opportunity to engage in a Q&A session. The webinar is free to attend, but advanced registration is requested.
Since 2017, this series of panel discussions has been held across the EU as well as in other neighbouring countries. Designed to discuss the benefits of EU integration and membership, this is also an opportunity to engage broader civil society to debate about the transformative power and direct benefits of the EU.
