Check-in and lunch





Climate change has prompted a growing recognition of the importance of transatlantic cooperation. By pooling resources, knowledge, and expertise, countries can work together to develop innovative solutions, accelerate the transition to clean energy, and implement sustainable policies on a larger scale. Such cooperation has the potential to amplify the impact of individual efforts and foster a global movement towards a more sustainable future.

However, alongside the promises lie potential pitfalls. Differing national priorities, economic considerations, and political dynamics can complicate collaborative efforts. Balancing environmental goals with economic growth and addressing the needs of diverse stakeholders can hinder the progress.

At this event the panellist addressed the potential promises and pitfalls of transatlantic cooperation on climate action, shared their insights on effective collaboration and identified ways for innovative solutions.
