China and the EU - online event

Background

2020 should have been the ‘climate super year’, but the COVID-19 virus has massively disrupted major economic areas. How can the EU and China forge new alliances for more climate action?

As Germany currently holds the EU presidency, the country has a unique opportunity to shape EU policy together with its partners. China has become increasingly aware of the consequences – not only within its own borders – of climate change and is prepared to assume a leading role and take international responsibility in implementing the Paris Climate Agreement. Within this context, the Federal Foreign Office (AA) and the German Energy Agency (dena) are organising a pivotal event with leading figures and high-ranking guests.
