Getting serious about the green economy: social and economic tools to achieve bold climate targets (GMT Time)

European Green Deal, climate-neutrality, just transition


REPLAY - Glasgow -  10/11/2021 - 17:30 - 18:30 GMT

Dynamic panel with leading figures that have played an influential role in climate action and recent COPs to discuss innovative social and economic approaches needed to realize both the green and social objectives to fairly distribute the benefits of the new green economy.
Led by Teresa Ribera, Deputy Prime Minister of the Spanish Government, and moderated by Mariana Mazzucato, Professor in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value at University College London (UCL) and Founding Director of the UCL Institute for Innovation & Public Purpose (IIPP), this panel will bring together leaders who have pursued ambitious climate action – representing past, present and future hosts of COP – to explore both which tools and policies work and which do not across different countries, sectors, and approaches to enable a just green transition. They will also reflect on how to gain traction ahead of COP27 and the importance of building momentum for climate action.
