European Union Visitors Programme webinar: What are the European Union and its strategic partners doing to aim for a brighter and greener future?
The European Union Visitors Programme invites young political and opinion leaders to discover the European institutions and to share the knowledge and expertise from their countries and fields of work. In this talk, we will discuss climate change from a global perspective: What can we do to turn these challenges into opportunities? How to ensure a just transition into climate neutrality? What are the European Union and its strategic partners doing to aim for a brighter and greener future?
You will be able to ask your questions directly to the experts and the representatives of the institutions, by following the event at this link: https://broadcaster.interactio.eu/join/byfa-y8dh-vutm
