As negotiators finally come up for air after intense negotiations at COP26, it is now time for EU leadership to begin the real work of climate action beyond the conference. How can the EU and its member states take on this role and enact change to advance climate ambitions in a practical way?
Looking at diplomacy and development to emissions regulation, trade, and technology, our panel will share first-hand insights from the COP26 negotiations and what approach Europeans can adopt to achieve climate ambitions at home and abroad, as recommended in a new ECFR report Climate of cooperation: How the EU can help deliver a green grand bargain by Alex Clark, Susi Dennison, and Mats Engstrom.
Join us virtually on Thursday, 18 November at 13.00 – 14.00 CET for an in-depth discussion about what needs to happen next.
