Description

A new, more ambitious EU strategy on adaptation to climate change will be recently adopted by EC in order to strengthen efforts on climate-proofing, resilience building, prevention and preparedness, ensuring that businesses, cities and citizens are able to integrate climate change into their risk management practices.

Achieving the transition to a climate-neutral society will require significant investments in research and innovation, new ways of producing and consuming, and changes in the way we work and live together. Leading role in this process will play the involvement of the societies. To reach economy-wide climate neutrality, it is not possible to rely only on carbon removal all pathways towards climate neutrality require significant emissions reduction meaning adaption of a more resource efficient lifestyle for the modern societies.

The challenges and the opportunities raised by the European Green Deal to boost the efficient use of resource by moving to a cleaner and greener economy achieved by investing in environmentally-friendly technologies and supporting research innovation, will be discussed in this round table.
