Difficult green EU revolution
The Green Deal, the much-needed decarbonisation of the EU, is called its „new growth strategy”, but that does not mean a shortcut to paradise. The key to its success will be persuading Europeans to bear the cost of this difficult green transformation for a long time. Apart from supporting professional retraining and supporting poorer households hit by higher energy prices, the EU should quickly show ordinary citizens that the green transition is a new economic dynamic capable of creating many new jobs fairly rapidly. The European Commission is very much counting on a forthcoming „renovation wave” when it comes to buildings.
In.Europa is proud to cooperate with: The Foundation for Polish-German Cooperation, Konrad Adenauer Stiftung in Polen, European Academy Berlin and Auswärtiges Amt (Federal Foreign Office) in the frame of „Deutsch-Polnische Bürgerenergie fürs Klima”.
