Description
Achieving climate neutrality by 2050 is the declared goal of the European Union. Envisioning Europe as the first continent with net zero greenhouse gas emissions, Commission President Ursula von der Leyen described the announcement of the EU Green Deal as Europe’s "man on the moon moment".

To realise this ambitious leap for mankind, substantial transformation is needed in areas such as transport, agriculture and industry. At the heart of it all, the energy sector plays a vital role. To meet Europe’s enormous demand for affordable, CO2-neutral energy, the EU has increasingly relied on international cooperation — including with African states, which could support the EU in the production of green hydrogen from renewable energies.

What opportunities and challenges arise from these partnerships? How can climate justice be ensured in the implementation of the Green Deal? What role do development policies play? Join us, along with a broad panel of speakers, as we discuss how the Green Deal can be a win-win for all.
