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.

At first glance, agriculture does not seem to be the most attractive career prospect for young Europeans today... Yet at a time when food security is more crucial than ever, Europe really needs a new generation of farmers who are prepared to get their hands dirty. In this episode, the journalists of our European network take a look at the young farmers of tomorrow: how will they relate to their work, to climate change, to digitalisation?

Can politics save the planet?

The so-called sharing economy, with its rental possibilities, allows goods to be used more efficiently, saving money and reducing waste. Perhaps you need a chainsaw to cut down the dead tree in your garden, an outfit for a gala event or a ski suit for your holiday... Are you going to buy these specialist items that may only be used once?
Little children are regularly told that sharing is caring, and it seems that this philosophy is gaining ground among adults in the EU - as our the journalists of our EU-wide network have found out.

The plastic pandemic

Friday Feb 25, 2022

Friday Feb 25, 2022

Over the last decade, we Europeans have increasingly thrown our weight behind the drive to reduce plastic waste, on the one hand by reducing our plastic consumption at the outset and, on the other, by better managing the waste we produce. From reusable bags to separate bins in our kitchen, we have all developed new behaviours to support the fight. But the pandemic has revealed one major obstacle on the road to a plastic-free (or at least plastic-light) world: the field of hygiene. So, has the pandemic set us back in our quest to consign plastic to the bin of history?
