Pathways to a Green Recovery
2 July @ 09:30 - 11:00
The BGA warmly invites you to attend an online event hosted by the German Embassy and organised jointly by the German and French embassies and the Delegation of the European Union to the United Kingdom, in cooperation with the British Government and E3G.
The COVID-19 crisis has posed unprecedented challenges to economies around the globe. It has profoundly disrupted daily lives, communities and the global economy and requires an unparalleled response. If anything, COVID-19 has once again highlighted the need for international and European cooperation during crises and beyond. Major economies, particularly in Europe, bear a responsibility to keep climate action at the heart of a COVID-19 recovery ahead of COP26.
This stakeholder event is organised by the German and French embassies and the Delegation of the European Union to the United Kingdom, in cooperation with the British Government. It will be hosted by the German Embassy and E3G during E3G’s virtual London Climate Action Week and will bring together a wide range of perspectives on what a green recovery means at EU and domestic levels in Germany, France and the UK.
This webinar is part of the virtual London Climate Action Week hosted by E3G. Due to COVID-19 London Climate Action Week 2020 will take place in two instalments across the year. London Climate Action Week Digital will run from 1-3 July. It will convene climate leadership across London to deliberate the climate policy response to COVID-19. London Climate Action Week 2020 will run from 16-22 November. LCAW 2020 will bring together climate leadership from across London to generate and scale-up solutions to the climate emergency.
This event will take place on Thursday 2nd July at 09:30-11.00 (BST). The event will take place online using Zoom, which can be accessed via internet or phone line. A link to join the webinar will be shared with you following registration.
