Description

The European Green Deal is a new foreign policy tool for the EU with profound geopolitical consequences, both in its immediate neighborhoods and beyond. While the Green Deal is an effort to transform the European economy at its core and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% until 2030, it will also define the EU's global policy priorities in the decades ahead. As the EU takes more of a leadership role in climate change discussions, it may be able to leverage its relationship with both close and more distant partners and to encourage just-transition policies and other green politics beyond its immediate sphere of influence.

Join us on Monday, January 10, at 10AM ET for a virtual event to discuss the European Union's Green Deal, its implications for climate diplomacy and strategic foresight, and impact on transatlantic relations. This event is co-sponsored by the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation and part of our Transatlantic Dialogue Series.
