Climate Week NYC Virtual Event | Green Recovery from COVID-19: Perspectives From Across the Globe

Past Event

September 22, 2020

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Around the world, countries are undertaking fiscal stimulus in order to accelerate their recovery from COVID-19. In some locations, governments are integrating into their stimulus programs investments designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollution, increase clean energy innovation, create jobs, and provide climate solutions. This event will focus on so-called “green stimulus” in several settings around the globe — in the United States, in the European Union, and in developing countries including those across sub-Saharan Africa. Join the Center on Global Energy Policy for a candid and far-reaching panel discussion on green recovery from COVID-19, which will explore various governments’ approaches to creating jobs and cutting emissions through such elements as clean energy transition funds, carbon taxes and green infrastructure. Panelists will share insights on prospects for a green recovery and how economies can emerge from this crisis stronger and more sustainable than we were before. Panelists: — Dr. Mauricio Cárdenas, Visiting Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy — Eric Garcetti, Mayor of Los Angeles and Chair of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group — Damilola Ogunbiyi, CEO and Special Representative, UN Secretary-General for Sustainable Energy for All — Commissioner Kadri Simson, EU Commissioner for Energy, European Commission — Moderated by Jason Bordoff, Founding Director of the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia SIPA — This webinar will be hosted via Zoom. Advance registration is required. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email with access details. The event will be recorded and the video recording will be added to our website following the event. This event is open to press, and registration is required to attend.
