Introduction

Dealing with the EU Green Deal – A workshop that gets you equipped for advocacy, inspired on the Comitology newsletter special edition

The term ‘Green Deal’ covers new initiatives such as the EU Climate Law, yet another 20 legislative acts are expected to be revised and another 200 to 250 delegated and implementing acts will shape the policy on an operational level, impacting all EU economic sectors from energy and material producing organisations over key economic sectors such as the automotive, chemical and construction sector to agriculture and the food processing sector.

Effective engagement requires an adequate understanding of which decisions can be expected but more importantly how, when and by whom they will be adopted and in the context of which financial framework. How the COVID crisis will impact the EU Green Deal is a supplementary question we cannot set aside.

This 3 hours online workshop will provide you with the key building blocks to successful understand the challenges ahead and to advocate your interests in the context of the EU Green Deal. The workshop will focus on decision-making processes and policies.
