The Green New Deal is alternatively viewed as a bold and progressive American solution to climate change or an economically destructive government intrusion into private enterprise. Yet in the European Union, the ideas behind the Green New deal have become the consensus solution to decarbonization and which underpins much of the official climate change roadmap of the European Commission. With consensus on one side of the Atlantic, and controversy on the other, is there room for new forms of climate change cooperation? Can we find ways towards a sustainable growth?

Join us for a transatlantic discussion with opportunities to learn from each other about this hotly debated topic. With:

Alyssa Battistoni, Political theorist, co-author of A Planet to Win- Why we need a Green New Deal
Sharon Block, Executive Director of the Harvard Law School’s Labor and Worklife Program at HLS
The Hon. Pierre Larrouturrou, M.E.P.
Moderator Muriel Rouyer, Professor at the University of Nantes, Fellow at the Ash Center
This event is cosponsored by the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies at Harvard.
