Think2030 conference / Commissioner for the Environment Virginijus Sinkevičius / introduction of the conference
The 3rd edition of the bi-annual Think2030 conference, co-organized by IDDRI and IEEP and hosted by Sciences Po, was an opportunity to meet in person again and exchange thoughts on on the implementation status of the Green Deal by 2024 and beyond. The first results of this year’s European Green Deal Barometer were shared during the event, and a series of roundtables on subjects ranging from CBAM to sustainable food systems served to refine recommendations for the successful implementation of the Green Deal.
On the afternoon of 29 June, we presented the main results of the second edition of the European Green Deal Barometer and discussed the lessons we could learn for advancing the implementation of the Green Deal with high-level representatives from the European institutions and the Trio Presidency.
The second day, 30 June, was used to dive into key thematic areas – ranging from climate and energy policy to sustainable food systems – and refine policy recommendations targeted at the Trio Presidency, the European Parliament and the Commission. The recommendations, drafted by Think Sustainable Europe, were presented for discussion to the Think2030 community to sharpen them collaboratively.
