The European Green Deal - what’s behind it?

Podcast series of the EURENI project “Green Deal - Big Deal?” carefully examines the main aspects of the European Green Deal.

With the European Green Deal, the EU Commission has presented at the end of 2019 its roadmap for the transformation to becoming a sustainable, climate-neutral Europe by 2050. Since then, numerous measures have been decided and initiated. But what exactly does the European Green Deal entail? What impacts does it have on everyday life and what challenges does its implementation involve? In its project “Green Deal – Big Deal?” the Ecologic Institut explores these questions and others. In eleven episodes by now, experts from politics, business and science discuss various aspects of the Green Deal.

The podcast series addresses in particular young EU citizens with an interest in environmental topics who want to gain a better understanding of what exactly the European Green Deal is about and how it will affect their everyday lives. In addition to the podcast episodes, the project website also offers a series of webinars on this topic.

Zukunft - Umwelt - Gesellschaft (ZUG) gGmbH manages the European Environment Initiative (EURENI) on behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV).
