Webinar, Tuesday, 27 April 2021, 15:00-16:15 CET / 09:00-10.15 EST via Zoom

One of President Biden’s first initiatives was to rejoin the Paris Agreement, signalling a complete shift in U.S. climate policy. To reinforce this intent, he convened a Climate Summit on the occasion of Earth Day (22 April). These initiatives will help the U.S. and Europe to synergise their efforts and establish real momentum for change on climate. However, commitment from other major global powers is also needed, especially China.

This webinar explored how transatlantic climate policy will evolve and what needs to be done to meet the set targets. It also looked at the possibility of more collaboration with China and the potential impact such a decision entails.

The webinar was organised by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) in cooperation with the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF).
