23:00 EEST | Watch the Livestream

Nations around the world are planning for the clean energy transition of tomorrow, one of the key elements of the European Green Deal, the US Green New Deal, and other such frameworks around the world. With this transition comes a great opportunity to revive industry, build local economies, and create a sustainable, highly skilled, healthy workforce.  Several efforts are underway to determine the best way to invigorate this transition with innovative policies to ensure a just and equitable clean energy transition. This panel discussion will showcase job growth opportunities for the clean energy transition in the United States, Europe, and Korea and discuss what policies are available to support the transition in these different contexts.
