Event Description

About this online course

In December 2019, The Commission published a communication (https://ec.europa.eu/info/publications/communication-european-green-deal_en) on the European Green Deal, announcing a number of planned initiatives to foster environmental protection and combatting climate change. Since then numerous legislative initiatives have been issued, such as the European Climate Law (https://www.2021portugal.eu/en/news/european-climate-law-council-and-parliament-reach-provisional-agreement/), and it is not easy to keep track of all the legislative and policy developments, nor to understand how the funding works under the Green Deal.

This online course will allow you to have an understanding of all the environmental and climate change related policies. The course provides an overall picture of the current state of play of the legislation and explains the funding mechanisms under the Green Deal.

What will you learn?

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 in order to help achieve the objectives of environmental protection and combatting climate change under the Green Deal;
  • Up-to-date policy and legislative developments.

Course methodology

The online course will be delivered by means of live streaming during two consecutive days via Zoom.

The webinar sessions will be conducted by experts providing presentations on key topics. All sessions will be followed by Q&A periods allowing for the exchange of ideas, and discussion time where participants will have the opportunity to share professional experiences.
