Dear friends!

What a rare opportunity: Only yesterday (5.10.) the new EU Climate Commissioner Wopke Hoekstra was confirmed by the European Parliament and right next week you will have the opportunity to ask him your questions in the webinar – and of course hear from great guests! The topic is the World Climate Conference COP28 in Dubai at the end of November.

For this special webinar, we are teaming up with the Green, Socialdemocrat and Left groups in the European Parliament for this first cross-party and pan-European discussion on COP28 – live online and direct from the European Parliament. You don’t want to miss this!

Date: Tuesday, 10.10.2023, 15:30 – 17:00 CEST (Brussels)

No time on Tuesday afternoon?

Europe Calling is always recorded and then put online on Youtube & as a podcast. Register anyway and we will send you the link to the recording directly after the event.

Participants are:

  • Prof. Dr. Friederike Otto, climate scientist from Oxford University and co-author of the IPCC report
  • Vanessa Nakate, climate activist, candidate for this year’s Sakharov Prize and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador
  • Wopke Hoekstra, New EU Commissioner for Climate Action

Co-hosts are three climate politicians from the EU Parliament:

  • Michael Bloss, MEP Greens/EFA, Germany.
  • Mohammed Chahim, MEP S&D, Netherlands
  • Petros Kokkalis, MEP Left, Greece

Moderation: Kira Taylor, journalist Euractiv

What it will be about:

  • COP28 will be a controversial conference: What is the role of the fossil fuel industry in achieving ambitious global climate goals?
  • What are the concrete impacts of reluctant climate action on the planet and on people’s lives?
  • What was achieved after COP27 in Sharm El-Sheik and what challenges remain for the EU?
  • What does the EU now plan to do with the new Commissioner to achieve its climate goals?

The webinar will be held in English and simultaneously translated into German.
