ABOUT THE EVENT
Earlier this year the President of the EU Commission presented a plan worth a thousand billion euros for a Green New Deal and the most recent discussion in Europe focuses on how to secure that the recovery post-Corona is green. Climate policy has been and will remain the prominent feature of the economic, political, social and scientific arena. This immediately impacts daily life decisions of individuals as well as investment budgets of the private and public sector globally.
In addition to measures to reduce CO2 emissions, another important focus of the debate is the adaptation to the effects of climate change. What to do about extreme weather events such as storms and heavy rainfall, which are likely to increase further? What measures should be taken against rising sea levels? How to deal with longer periods of drought? These questions are of pressing concern to political, economic and civil society actors on the ground.
At our upcoming event, we would like to contribute to the debate and discuss current good practices as well as remaining areas in need of action in the future.
You will receive the Zoom link, as well as the webinar password the day prior to the event.
Please connect to the event 5 minutes prior (13.55h) to allow time for technical assistance and troubleshooting.
In addition, the event will be live streamed on the FNF Europe Facebook page (@fnf.europe).
