EFC European Environmental Funders Group Webinar – The Green Deal: implications and future perspectives

The EFC’s European Environmental Funders Group (EEFG) is organising a webinar on the Green Deal proposal presented by the European Commission, on 25 September, 10:00-11:00 CET, the third in a series of webinars discussing specific environmental issues the philanthropic sector is currently working on.

The “Green Deal” proposal presented by the European Commission in December 2019 is a comprehensive roadmap for steering the EU towards carbon neutrality and, more broadly, towards sustainable development objectives. The Commission created political momentum with its outspoken ambition to define “profoundly transformative” measures and revise numerous European laws and programs, going beyond previous efforts (“A Clean Planet for All” from 2018); However, many of the suggested policies are still to be specified and the final outcome will depend on political struggles within the complex EU governance system.

This session will briefly point out the key strengths and weaknesses of the roadmap and suggest ways of improving it. It will be a safe space for philanthropic organisations to intervene by raising questions, challenges, discuss about opportunities and experiences.
