German Presidency Memorandum 2020

In these challenging times, Germany has both a unique opportunity and responsibility to work with all EU Member States to promote a recovery from the Corona crisis that embraces the green transition and leaves no one behind.

Returning back to business-as-usual is not an option and progressive policies, identified by our Ten Green Tests within, need to be embraced to catalyse a transition towards sustainability that invests in the EU’s ecological, social and economic resilience, and has a future-orientated policy that strengthens our ability to face future crises and give the youth of today the future they deserve.
