Webinar 20 October: The European Green Deal: challenges in the East

The Green Deal shows the EU raising its environmental ambitions. The European commission has already made several proposals, including tougher climate measures. But existing conditions are different across the EU. How can the countries of Central and Eastern Europe maximize their benefit from the Green Deal, and not end up on the wrong side of a widening gap? And what does it take for the whole EU to benefit from higher environmental ambitions?

These questions will be discussed by experts at a webinar on 20 October. The talk will be based on a forthcoming European policy analysis from SIEPS: "The European Green Deal and the Risk of Widening the East-West Gap" by Julian Popov. The author is a Fellow of the European Climate Foundation and former Minister of Environment in Bulgaria. Jytte Guteland, Member of the European Parliament (Social Democrat) and Péter Kaderják, Director of the Zero Carbon Hub in Budapest will comment on Popov’s analysis and join a panel discussion with the author.
