European Green Deal: From ambitions to the reality

Monday 11th May 2020

14:00 – 15:30

Meeting climate targets was set to be the main challenge facing our generation, that now sits alongside defending itself from covid-19. The path out of the pandemic will define this European legislature and the Progressive movement. Both have an important role to play. The European Green Deal (EGD)will be one of the initiatives that is hoped to drive a wide-reaching recovery plan and help to ensure a more equal and sustainable path is laid for the future.

Against this background, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) together with the Renner Institut (RI) and the Austrian Chamber of Labour (AK) have started a joint research project. The project’s first policy brief addresses the question: Are the planned measures laid out in the European Commission’s Green Deal roadmap enough to meet the Paris targets?

An online closed meeting is being organised to discuss this policy brief which provides a concise summary of the scientific consensus on climate change and maps it onto the EGD roadmap. This mapping allows for the identification of key policy areas in which more or different policy actions are needed.
