Building Back Better Together – Canada and Europe, in partnership with the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Canada.
In the spirit of globalizing a green recovery, Building Back Better Together explores key insights for how the international community can build back better together post-COVID. The Roundtables bring together Canadian, German and other European experts, policy makers and business leaders to exchange insights from the current crisis and to reflect on climate action post-COVID in order to avoid a longer term catastrophe by sparking a global green recovery.
This virtual series takes place under the banner of Ottawa Climate Talks, initiated by the German Embassy, which have explored climate-related topics since 2015.
IN THIS VIRTUAL ROUNDTABLE:
The discussion will take a mutual learning focus on the different approaches to, and philosophies behind, green stimulus deals in Germany, France, Canada, and at the EU level, including the role that business can play in making green stimulus more effective.
