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.

Parties are the time to have a blast, and a break from the constraints of everyday life.
