The European Green Deal: Opportunities and challenges

The heart of the discussion on a Green New Deal is how to seize the multiple opportunities created by new sustainable and low-carbon technologies. However, many issues are yet to be tackled: are the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund going to review and ‘green’ their standard policies? How is the EU Commission going to raise the €1 trillion it has pledged for green investments? What are the implications for regions and workers who find themselves in sectors without a place in the low-carbon and sustainable future? How are we going to accelerate the process to bring useful results of R&D to the level of commercial investment?

The panel will be moderated by a high-level international journalist.
