  Add to Calendar 2020-06-01 17:00 2020-06-01 18:00 Europe/Paris #FlorenceLive webcast: conversations on the post-Corona world and climate

The COVID-19 pandemic has already profoundly changed how we live and work, and how the world is organised. To understand these changes and help navigate a post-Corona world, the European University Institute (EUI) School of Transnational Governance (STG) presents a webcast series of conversations and interviews with academics and high-level policy-makers. The experts will discuss social, economic and political issues relating to the new global environment from a transnational perspective, blending academic and policy analysis.

The webcasts will consist of one-hour livestreamed panel discussions every Monday on the implications of COVID-19 on: democracy; state vs. market; climate; digital; migration; the emerging world; geopolitics. In addition, interviews with high-level policymakers will be organised according at the availability of participants. 

This webcast will address the post-Corona world and climate, by examining the questions such as:

  • What is the impact of the pandemic on the climate, on the goals set by the EU, on specific strategies and policy tools? 
  • How can we integrate climate goals in the economic recovery plan?

Discussants:

  • Harald Winkler is Director of the Energy Research Centre (ERC) at the University of Cape Town (UCT).
  • Brigitte Knopf is Secretary General at Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC). She is responsible for the management and strategy of MCC; the cooperation with universities and stakeholders from government, business and civil society. At MCC she is also responsible for the German and European climate policy (Energiewende). Her recent work focuses on the implementation of the Paris agreement on the German and international level.

Moderator:

  • Jos Delbeke is Professor at the School of Transnational Governance and KU Leuven in Belgium. He was the Director-General of the European Commission's DG Climate Action from its creation in 2010 until 2018. 

The event will be livestreamed. To participate in the conversation, post your comments and questions in the comment feed below the video.
