How can the European Green Deal be implemented beyond Brussels?
Achieving the ambitious European climate targets will require substantially broadening the agenda and the circle of involved actors. The European Green Deal can only be successful when non-EU countries, industry, social partners, central banks, national policymakers, and many other actors support, or at least not obstruct, the transformation.
In this high-level pan-European conference, we are bringing together key EU think-tanks, national government representatives and European policymakers to discuss the priority green-deal policies that go beyond classic Brussels-based environmental regulations. We will reflect on the main outcomes of COP26 in the context of the coherent EU action.
