Euranet Plus Green Deal podcast

The European Union wants to go green. In December 2019, the European Commission unveiled its Green Deal, its roadmap to making the EU economy sustainable and thus achieving its end goal: to become the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. But what does the Green Deal mean for each of us? As citizens, as consumers, what habits will we need to change to make our day-to-day lives more sustainable? What compromises will we have to make? And what measures can we expect from Europe and our national public authorities to encourage these changes? By delving into daily life across the EU in this Green Deal podcast, our network of radio correspondents provides insight and answers to the challenges facing the bloc.

Our journalists in the Euranet Plus network have spoken to people across the EU to find out what their limits are – and to try to understand what would help to overcome them.

Did you know that the building sector accounts for 40 per cent of all European energy consumption? And that it is also the biggest source  of the bloc’s greenhouse gas emissions as it generates 36 per cent of its carbon emissions?
