Event Description

Course description

Part of the EIPA series on the Green Deal, this is an opportunity to get the ‘big picture’ on the Green Deal as well as a clear overview of its main components. Learn about the climate change objectives (‘Fit for 55’, carbon neutrality by 2050), energy union (energy efficiency and energy renewables), circular economy, biodiversity strategy, ‘farm to fork’ strategy and zero pollution objectives. Get updated on the latest legislative developments on all issues related to the Green Deal. Have a clear picture of the financing of the Green Deal and understand the allocation of EU funds to projects and initiatives which contribute to the objectives of the Green Deal.

You will learn about:

  • the pillars of the Green Deal, such as air quality, waste management, climate targets, energy efficiency and energy renewables;
  • the interplay with other policy areas such as agriculture or transport;
  • which EU funds are available under which financing programmes to help achieve the objectives of environmental protection and combatting climate change under the Green Deal;
  • up-to-date policy and legislative developments.
