Decarbonisation in a new geopolitical landscape – the EU, US and China

27 May 2021, 15:00-16:15
Online

This free webinar gathers researchers from the Mistra Geopolitics research programme to examine how the new geopolitical landscape with the EU, the US and China will affect opportunities for sustainability transitions; how different countries position themselves in decarbonisation competition and cooperation; and how global trends might hinder decarbonisation.

27 May 2021, 15:00-16:15 CEST

Changes in the geopolitical landscape may have far-reaching implications on the opportunities to drive sustainable development agendas. At the same time, the transitions that are needed to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions will have geopolitical repercussions, both due to the implications of declining fossil fuel demands, and to the consequences of development and expansion of new sources of energy and materials required for the transition.
