Reflections on the prospects for synergies between the European Green Deal & the European Gender Strategy

Watch & share the event recording!

Europe’s green recovery and the transition to a climate-neutral economy go hand in hand with the need for fully unlocking Europe’s talent pool and strengthening inclusion and equality in the field of energy and climate.

The European Green Deal sets Europe on the pathway to become the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, while the EU’s first-ever Gender Equality Strategy is designed to make gender equality in the European Union a reality. Building synergies between these two strategies will be crucial to improving gender equality in energy, climate, and sustainability space in Europe and harnessing Europe’s talent to support a green and sustainable recovery from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The FSR Lights on Women initiative and the WECS Foundation are holding a special online event to discuss the mutually reinforcing objectives for Europe: green recovery, the transition to a climate-neutral economy, and gender equality. During the event, we will discuss: 

  • Pathways to building synergies between the European Green Deal and the EU’s first-ever Gender Equality Strategy
  • What are the opportunities for creating an inclusive hydrogen economy in Europe from the outset?
  • The role of Gender Impact Assessments of strategic projects designed to contribute to Europe’s transition to net-zero

 

This join event is organized with the Women in Energy, Climate and Sustainability (WECS) foundation

Women in Energy, Climate and Sustainability (WECS) is a public foundation established to promote gender equality as an enabler of the transition towards a climate-neutral economy in Europe and worldwide. WECS objective is to facilitate gender diversity and women empowerment in the fields of energy, climate and sustainability.
