High-level panel discussion: All-change at the EU: more of the same or a chance to set an ambitious green vision for the ‘20s?

This session will address the prospects and priorities for environmental policy as the EU approaches a new legislative cycle and a new decade. Panellists will be invited to discuss the success and failures in advancing environmental policy in the current five-year cycle, the reasons for those successes and failures, the key priorities post-2020 and how we can deliver on those.
