What is the EU’s current climate plan? How does it stack up against the threat of permanent and irreversible climate change? And what actions should be taken now to ensure a future for our planet?
In the framework of the EP4U project, TEPSA teamed up with Emma Hakala from the University of Helsinki and Finnish Institute of International Affairs to organise a University Debate on the topic of European Union climate action. The event took place in an online format in Finnish, on September 22 at 12:00 noon local time (11:00 CET). Dr. Emma Hakala is a leading expert on climate security and the environment, and moderated a stimulating discussion between Alviina Alametsä MEP, climate activist Ellen Ojala, and Ismo Ulvila, who is Head of Communication at the European Commission Representation in Finland.
The event started with a presentation on the EU’s climate policy “in a nutshell” before moving on to a panel discussion on three key topics:
- EU Climate Goals and Ambition
- Just Transition in the EU
- EU Climate Policy in a Global Context
This was a fascinating event for young students eager to make a difference in the EU’s climate future!
