Citizens' energy for a good climate: Poland and its future

The Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament is organising a participatory debate on the future of Poland's energy policy. The event will take place on 15 and 16 November 2013 in Warsaw in the framework of the UN climate discussions


DATEFriday 15th and Saturday 16th November 2013
VENUEPalace of Culture and Science, Warsaw, Poland 
Polish, English, German and French

At this next Conference Of the Parties (COP19), all eyes will be on Poland. Not only will Poland have the chance to lead the UN climate negotiations and play a key role on the international stage, it will also have an opportunity to weigh in on the debate about the economic future of the European Union itself. 

This debate opportunity in Poland will also be crucial in preparation of the Paris summit scheduled for 2015, which should result in a fair and ambitious climate deal. The European Greens would therefore like to give the opportunity to key actors and stakeholders in Poland and Europe to engage in a fresh and frank debate about the economic, environmental, health and societal impacts of Poland's climate and energy policies. 

Participants will come from all over Europe but a special position will be reserved for Polish citizens to lend their voice to the debate regarding the future of Poland. Given the limited time left to seal a deal on tackling climate change, we urgently need to discuss what role Poland and the other countries should play in order to ensure success for future COPs. The Greens are determined to prove that the transition to sustainable and climate friendly economies and societies means everyone wins. 

More information about the programme and the registration can be find on the event webpage.
