12nov12:00 pm1:00 pmThe New Speed of Politics: Technology and Sustainability in the EU

Event Details

Countries of the European Union have collectively offered a leading global voice on the use of technology for local and planetary sustainability. This panel brings together two Former Members of the European Parliament with comparative experience in urban politics and corporate governance, from experience in the national politics of older and newer member states. How well has the legislative body of the European Parliament been able to negotiate such differences in experience and perspective to reach compromises? Is there currently stronger hope for technological solutions to sustainability? What are effective roles that corporations and local — even municipal — governments can play to promote sustainable innovation? These are some of the questions our panelists will explore.

This event is part of the #JMintheUS event series, an initiative of Jean Monnet Centers in the U.S.
