November 17, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

(November 18 @ 9:00 am –  10:30 am KST)

South Korea has adopted a Green New Deal as an official government program. It includes targeted investments in green and digital technology, the creation of hundreds of thousands of jobs, and a reduction of the country’s sizable carbon footprint. Is this a major shift from the country’s “Green growth” approach? Has the government followed through on its promises? What are the prospects for a true transition to clean energy in Korea? Four Korean experts report from the frontlines of the climate crisis in Asia.
