EP4U Student Paper: “Beyond Carbon Neutrality: Three Steps for the EU”, Lilybell Evergreen

Lilybell Evergreen is a student at the Open University in the UK, and winner of the EP4U Student Contest in the “Climate & the Environment” policy area. Lilybell’s brief focuses on objectives for Europe and the world beyond climate neutrality. Her optimistic viewpoint gives rise to original and comprehensive policy recommendations.


This policy paper attempts to address some of the key steps the EU could take to move beyond climate-neutrality. It is important that Europe’s ambitions do not end with becoming the first climate-neutral continent. As the home of many of the world’s early industrialisers, Europe arguably has a moral duty to lead the green revolution as it did the historical industrial revolution.
