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.

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? It goes without saying that the European Union will not be able to achieve its Green Deal climate ambitions of cutting 55 per cent of its greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 without ensuring this key sector plays its part.
Renovating your home to make it more energy efficient has great potential for the climate – and for your wallet. So, are you playing you part?

Extreme weather events, a consequence of climate change, are becoming more frequent and intense around the world. While EU members will also find themselves increasingly compelled to develop politics and strategies to help citizens adapt, the bloc’s water resources require better coordination at EU level too.

Recent disastrous events, the COVID pandemic and then the war in Ukraine, have caused major disruption in supply chains. The European Union feels a pressing need to increase self-sufficiency when it comes to the supply of minerals and other critical raw materials. But if we plan to reshore this supply, we will have to bear the environmental and social costs of our own consumption.

Can Mother Nature and social media influencers walk hand in hand – or does social media only serve to promote materialism and consumerism, instead of the societal sea change the climate crisis is calling for?

Parties are the time to have a blast, and a break from the constraints of everyday life. With climate anxiety taking its toll on many of Europe’s youngsters, war at the bloc’s borders, the pandemic continuing to rear its ugly head and another major economic crisis looming, it’s no surprise that many wish to put their sense of responsibility to one side to let off steam for a few hours. But does partying have to mean letting go of our environmental convictions? In this episode, our radio journalists went to the party across Europe, to see how it goes...

The food we have on our plates tomorrow will depend largely on the choices we make as a society today. These choices are influenced by demographics, health, trade interdependencies, and geopolitics, as the crisis in Ukraine has reminded us all too well. But, most importantly, climate change is playing a spoiler role. So what will we be eating in twenty years' time? A new episode prepared with interviews from across the European Union.
