Environmental & Sustainability Summit 2020
WE CAN. WE DO.
June 5 | Online event
ABOUT

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought, very suddenly, a global contraction of human activities. The industrial sector, air traffic and tourism, were some of the most affected businesses, but is there a silver lining?

Forced by the current crisis, we have initiated one of the biggest environmental experiments in history: the pandemic showed us that we can have a green future. But, as things will eventually settle down and the crisis will pass, from an environmental perspective returning to our old ways when the pandemic will be over is not the most desirable outcome. The new normality must be a sustainable one. What can WE do to keep this trend?

WE CAN. WE DO.

AGENDA
June 5
Opening Keynote Speech
10:00
Marius Vaščega
European Commission Head of Cabinet Environment, Oceans and Fisheries
PANEL 1 | Restart Green Romania

The current context may repeat itself in a not so distant future. Studies show that virus transmissions from animals to humans and the impact they have on the human body is directly linked to deforestations and air, water and soil pollution.
We have the opportunity, but also the duty, to restart our activities in the post-pandemic world without our previous negative impact on the environment. Clearer and more effective measures must be implemented in areas such as water and forest protection, energetic efficiency, green transportation, and waste management.

10:15

Topics:
· Restarting at different levels (Romania, the EU, the UN);
· European legislation, before and after Covid-19;
· European, national, and local projects;
· Involving all the players in implementing sustainable projects (The UN, the EU, governments, companies, NGOs, citizens);

PANEL 3 | Sustainability & Circular Economy

Even if sustainability and circular economy are very often talked about, the reality is far from the potential. Even in developed countries, objectives are met only after sustained efforts. Can Romania, like other emerging countries, afford these efforts?

11:15

Topics:
· Sustainability at country level: digitalization, green energy, transportation, ecological agriculture, waste management;
· Circular Economy in Romania & SEE. A model based on development, culture & education levels;
· Sustainable packaging. Selective waste collection vs. sorting. Recycling;
· Involving stakeholders – authorities – companies – population – Launching the Movement for Recycling.
