To avert climate breakdown, the vast majority of gas, oil and coal reserves need to stay in the ground. The European Parliament has followed local and national parliaments in declaring a state of climate emergency. The European Commission has responded by tabling a European Green Deal, which should deliver the necessary transformation to transform our societies and bring the era of fossil fuels to an end.
In this context, Friends of the Earth Europe, Corporate Europe Observatory, Greenpeace and Food and Water Europe are hosting a public debate on the conflicts of interests in the European Green Deal.
Join us to explore how to ensure EU policies do not benefit the industries that are the primary cause of climate breakdown, while penalising communities who bear little responsibility.
The event will be held on Tuesday 17 March2020 at the Press Club in Brussels from 6.30 to 8.30 pm.
