Event: The green transition – EU and our regional shift to fossil fuel free transports (Stockholm, 5 December 2017)

Actions taking place in Brussels and in the European Union influence our regional transition to fossil fuel-free transports. How does the EU-level influence our possibilities to meet our regional targets – and how can we influence the EU? During the seminar, we will discuss the implementation of new directives and questions still on the table. How does the EU level influence our regions and how can politicians, public entities and businesses influence EU policies and cooperate with and within different networks connected to the EU?

Study: Implementation of the 7th Environment Action Programme – Mid-term review

The 7th Environment Action Programme (7th EAP) is the long term overarching strategy of the EU and its Member States in the field of environment and climate change. It covers a seven-year time frame (between 2014 and 2020) and is the first to set a long-term vision for policy-making in the field, until 2050. This European Implementation Assessment found that while the EAP scope remains relevant to current needs and adds value to EU and national policy-making efforts, its objectives are unlikely to be fully met by 2020, despite sporadic progress in some areas. Another key finding in this document is that environmental and climate-related concerns are not sufficiently integrated into a number of EU policies. These findings were made on the basis of publicly available sources of information (specifically aimed at informing the evaluation of the 7th EAP) and views shared in the course of the targeted stakeholder consultation in support of this document.
