Online ELF Liberal climate and energy policies

  Energising Europe: raising climate ambition and boosting energy solutions for growth As the voice of young liberals in Europe, we want to take an active part in reshaping Europe and putting the views and policies of our membership on the agenda of decision makers. We also want to contribute to the discussion on how to solve the big questions of our time. This seminar will not only provide a forum to discuss what energy solutions and which energy policy should be proposed for the future, but it will also be an opportunity for young liberals to come together and make their own policy proposals.   Due to the COVID-19 world pandemic we have to move our event initially planned in Copenhagen organised by ELF to an online event.    Friday 26 June 2020 15:00    Welcome and objective setting            Daniel Kaddik, Executive Director, ELF            Dan-Aria Sucuri, Vice-President LYMEC 15:20    Is liberalism the answer to sustainability?             Marie Bjerre, MP, Venstres Denmark             Louise Grabo, Secretary General, Swedish FinTech Association Moderator: Laia Comerma, Events and Training Officer LYMEC   16:20    Short break 16:30    Interactive session – Liberal perspectives on the LYMEC policy book on climate and energy Ruben Henriksson, Chief assistant, FORES Climate Program 17:45    Wrap-up of the first day             Dan-Aria Sucuri, Vice-President LYMEC   END OF THE FIRST DAY   Saturday 27 June 2020 10:00    Current energy and climate policies in times of Green Deal – road to a successful policy             Daniel Mes, Member of Cabinet, Executive Vice-President Timmermans, European Commission             Alexander Klein, Former advisor for Sustainable development to the Government of Romania Moderator: August Stengaard, Board member, Danish Liberal Democracy Programme (DLDP) 11:00    Short break 11:15    Interactive session – develop your sustainability toolkit  Desiree Hoving, Moderator & science journalist 12:30    Wrap-up and conclusions Dan-Aria Sucuri, Vice-President LYMEC   END OF THE SECOND DAY   This event aims at gathering young liberals from all across our member organisations focusing on liberal solutions for energy and climate concerns.
