The European Green Deal: A Step Forward, Sideways, or Backward?

October 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

(October 12 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm CEST)

The European Union is currently finalizing the details of its European Green Deal, an effort to transform the 27-nation bloc into a low-carbon economy. The EU aspires to achieve net-zero carbon emissions and eliminate pollution by 2050 while also creating new jobs in a new clean-energy economy. Is this a model for the rest of the world or a large-scale exercise in greenwashing? Four experts evaluate this enormous undertaking from a variety of economic, environmental, and geopolitical angles.

Presenters:

  • Ann Pettifor: director of Policy Research in Macroeconomics
    What the European Green Deal Gets Right
  • Dusan Pajovic, coordinator of Green New Deal for Europe, DiEM25
    What the European Green Deal Gets Wrong
  • Asad Rehman, executive director of War on Want
    The Global Context of the European Green Deal
  • Clara Bourgin, policy and advocacy officer, Counter Balance
    The Financing of the European Green Deal
