Nature Restoration Law: restoring Europe's ecosystems & protecting biodiversity
Our planet is experiencing a biodiversity crisis. And the problem across the EU is also severe, with more than 80% of habitats in the EU now in a bad or poor conservation status. To reverse this alarming trend, the European Commission has proposed the Nature Restoration Law, which aims to restore at least 20% of EU land and sea by 2030, and all ecosystems in need of restoration by 2050.

Green Deal - Big Deal?
The podcast discussing Europe's Green Future
Ursula von der Leyen, the President of the European Commission, described the European Green Deal as Europe's "man on the moon" moment. With this plan, the European Union aims to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, protect and enhance nature, and sustainably transform the European economy and society.
But what exactly is the European Green Deal? How will it change our everyday life? And what challenges does it pose?
In our podcast and webinar series "Green deal – Big Deal?" we take a critical look at these questions and discuss various aspects of the European Green Deal with experts from policy, business and science.
Are you interested in environmental issues or European policy? Would you like to understand what the European Green Deal is, how does it work and how will it impact our lives in the years to come?
Together with interview guests from policy, business and science our podcast hosts – Aaron Best and Ewa Iwaszuk from Ecologic Institute – will help you make sense of the European Green Deal and its complexity. In a series of podcast episodes, we will help you understand the significance of different measures by focusing on specific themes. We will talk about topics such as sustainable fashion, the future of cities and how will our diets look like in 2050.
Listening is nice, but not enough for you? You are in luck! In addition to the podcast series, we are organising a series of eight online events, targeting young Europeans aged 18-35. Enter the dialogue with us and our invited experts. We are keen to hear your questions, suggestions and ideas and discuss them together.
