The Green European Foundation is hosting its 10th Green Post-Corona Talks and invites Secretary General of Federation of Young European Greens, Michael Piccinino, Board Member of European Youth Forum and Adélaïde Charlier and Jada Kennedy, representatives of Youth for Climate Movement Belgium to discuss COVID-19, intergenerational solidarity and the youth perspectives.
The talk wants to address intergenerational solidarity in the light of the COVID-19 crisis but also how the pandemic is specifically affecting young people – from implications on their mobility or exercise of rights, to of course how the economic crisis will especially impact youth unemployment and precarity.
With the recovery package recently presented by the von der Leyen Commission being entitled “Next Generation EU”, the discussion will also shed a light on how the recovery of the EU and its economy can be ensured with without leaving the young generation behind, and how a more ambitious climate policy must be at the core of that.

About the event
The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic is having a grip on societies worldwide and will impact our lives long after the crisis is overcome. It is clear that we cannot continue with “business as usual,” but that we need to discuss positive ideas and concepts for a better, greener future and resilient societies now.
GEF is therefore hosting the Green Post-Corona Talks, a series of participatory online discussions with high-level experts, thinkers, and policy-makers, and the opportunity for participants to pose their most pressing questions to them live.
The talks will highlight what is currently at stake in the Corona crisis but also look beyond the period of the pandemic, and what possible solutions are already out there and can lend themselves to design the post-corona world.
The series will cover different themes from economy, over migration to gender, and bring in inspiring perspectives from all across Europe.
The project is implemented in cooperation with Oikos.
