CANCELED: The European Green Deal: Priorities, Cooperation and Challenges

When Ursula von der Leyen assumed the presidency of the European Commission, she outlined the Commission’s top policy priorities. These political priorities build the framework for the Commission over the next five years and can be summarized under five broad themes: “A European Green Deal;” “A Europe fit for the digital age;” “An economy that works for people;” “A new push for European democracy;” and “Promoting the European way of life.”

This presentation will focus on the proposed European Green Deal and examine how this proposal in conjunction with the American Green New Deal, which was endorsed and adopted by several prominent US policymakers, offers opportunities to avert a global climate crisis. Panelists will discuss the goals and approaches of each proposal, what they can learn from one another, and what the agenda for collaboration should be moving forward.
