From the 6-9th of June there will be European Parliamentary elections. The outgoing European Parliament has approved some of the most ambitious climate policies in history. However, to achieve the Paris Climate Agreement goals, the freshly elected European Parliament must approve policies to further accelerate this transition. Drawing on state of the art research, this symposium will discuss how the EU can accelerate the transition to a climate-neutral economy. Together with eminent scientists and policymakers from both the Netherlands and abroad, we will reflect on what the incoming European Parliament will mean for the future of green policies. The program will include distinguished speakers such as Benjamin Görlach (Head of Economics and Policy Assessment, Ecologic institute Berlin), professor Sebastian Oberthür (Free University Brussels), Dr. Harm Rienks (Wageningen University), Joeri Vendrik (CE Delft), and more.

A detailed program will follow. Please note that some speakers will present in Dutch, depending on the composition of the audience.
