Long-term strategies and how to get all of society involved

viernes, 28 de junio de 2019 | Trading

The European Union will hold a side event during the UN climate change conference in Bonn, Germany, entitled 'Long-term strategies and how to get all of society involved'.

The Paris Agreement invited countries to develop and present long-term low emissions development strategies by 2020. An increasing number of countries, along with cities, states, regions, and businesses are delivering such strategies, setting out a vision for their future to 2050.

In November 2018, the European Commission presented its proposal for a strategic long-term vision for a prosperous, modern, competitive and climate-neutral economy by 2050, following an extensive public consultation. Intensive engagement with member states, industry stakeholders, civil society and citizens continues to be a key principle as the proposal is now being discussed within the EU.

Other countries around the world are going through similar processes as they are preparing their long-term development strategies and visions for low-carbon and resilient futures. It is through common ownership that the transition will take place.

Panelists:

Artur Runge-Metzger, European Commission, Directorate-General for Climate Action
Deborah Ramalope, Ministry of Environment, South Africa
Monica Araya, Costa Rica Limpia
Bert de Wel, International Trade Union Confederation
Leon de Graaf, Business Europe
Charlotte Blommestijn, The B Team
Civil society representatives
Moderator: Bridgette Burkholder, 2050 Pathways Platform

The side event will take place on 25 June at 18:30-20:00 at the UN Conference Centre (Room Bonn) and will be followed by refreshments.

The event  will be webstreamed live and a recording will be available to view on-demand after the event (link below).
