BREAKFAST: EU after COP26 – what to expect?

Before and during COP26, young people have called for urgent climate action. The European Commission argues that climate action is the top priority for the EU. But is the speed fast enough? And what changes are to be expected by the EU Green Deal? These issues, among others, will be discussed in a breakfast seminar on 2 December.
