Lunchtime talk: What the European Green Deal means for climate
What is the European Union’s Green Deal and what does it mean for tackling climate change? Find out more from Friends of the Earth Europe.
In December 2019, the European Union announced it’s European Green Deal.
This is billed as the plan ‘to make the EU’s economy sustainable’ and to make the transition just and inclusive for all.
Now, despite the global pandemic the EU has continued to roll out the Green Deal. But what lies behind the headline and what does it mean for the EU’s climate action and for the world?
Join Colin Roche, Climate Justice and Energy Co-ordinator at Friends of the Earth Europe, for an introduction to the European Green Deal and the response of FoE Europe, with a particular focus on climate and energy policies.
Colin Roche is programme coordinator for climate justice and energy at Friends of the Earth Europe.
Colin has been with FoE Europe since 2014, principally working on the Fossil Free Europe campaign including FoE’s work on gas and the pollution of the Niger Delta.
Colin has worked for over 20 years in global justice campaigning, previously working for Oxfam and other campaign groups on trade, finance, corporate justice, climate and other issues.

Lunchtime talks are a series of 60 minute talks and discussions for Friends of the Earth staff, local group members and Climate Action Group activists. These talks are designed to stimulate thinking and increase awareness of different approaches to campaigning and the issues other campaigns are tackling.
They might not always be directly related to our core campaigns at Friends of the Earth. They might not even be at lunchtime! But they will give us food for thought more broadly about challenges and opportunities.
