The European Green Deal: what’s in it for European Islands?
Islands are at the forefront of the global fight against climate change since they are facing the devastating impacts on their local ecosystems and livelihoods. This is the reason that can be used as perfect test-beds for innovative technologies addressing real-life challenges. Indeed, islands represent excellent laboratories for technological innovation particularly in the fields of energy, transport, and mobility, tourism, etc. The workshop will aim to explore all potentials provided by the EU Green Deal for Islands and insular businesses, to analyze the key points of the Green Deal regarding island eco-systems and to promote Islands as test-beds for the implementation of the measures provided by the new instruments and Actions Plans (Public Transport, Cleaner Air, Food, buildings, electrical cars, etc).
