European Green Deal: From ambitions to the reality

In the framework of the research project “A fiscally sustainable public investment initiative in Europe to prevent climate collapse” FEPS, together with Renner Institut and the Federal Chamber of Labour in Austria is holding a discussion on the occasion of the presentation of the latest policy paper which seeks to address the question:Are the planned measures laid out in the European Commission’s Green Deal roadmap enough to meet the Paris targets?

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 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.

This webinar is the occasion for the authors to present the policy paper and hold a discussion on the wider context on this topic with other speakers. It is open to the public.

Joining as speakers for the discussion will be Julia Herr, Member of the National Council of Austria, SPÖ; spokesperson on environment and climate together with Niels Fuglsang, MEP S&D Group, Denmark

Authors of the policy paper: Rafael Wildauer, Lecturer in economics and Stuart Leitch, Research assistant. University of Greenwich
