The EEB working groups on Climate & Energy and Biodiversity are meeting in Brussels from Monday 27 February to Wednesday 1 March.
During the 3-day, in-person meeting, the working groups will discuss main policy updates at the EU and national level, exchange on implementation challenges and advocacy opportunities, and present their work programme for 2023.
The first day is going to be dedicated to climate issues ranging from the decarbonisation of buildings and heating and cooling technologies to the role of hydrogen, from the Paris Agreement-compatible (PAC) scenario to cross-cutting climate issues in agriculture, circular economy, air quality, and decarbonisation of industry.
The second day is going to be dedicated to analysis and updates regarding the Renewable Energy Directive and REPowerEU, including an outlook of upcoming implementation challenges and advocacy opportunities. Both the Climate & Energy and the Biodiversity working groups will be called to discuss and validate the NGO manifesto on nature-positive renewable energy.
The third day is going to be dedicated to the EU’s Nature Restoration Law and the wider work programme of the Biodiversity working group. Members of the Biodiversity working group will also have the chance to take part in the external event “Insights into Sweden’s forests.
Please note that these events are directed towards EEB members.
