honest and non-partisan manner, based on
scientifically sound information.

the entire society.

With the beginning of January, Spain handed over the rotating presidency of the European Union to Belgium. It is now time to assess the main achievements of the previous presidency, examine the priorities set by Belgium, and look ahead to the expected challenges of the upcoming Hungarian presidency.
As 2023 is ending, it is time to look back at our achievements of the year. In 2023 we were also working hard to address climate change and other urgent green policy issues in a balanced, honest and non-partisan manner, based on scientifically sound information.
The 28th Climate Conference of the Parties (COP28) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has concluded in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. We will now discuss our opinion on whether the results of the climate conference can truly be considered a historic success.
Germany, Europe’s economic powerhouse and as a global leader in exports and imports, Germany’s influential roles in international organizations underscore its pivotal global responsibilities, such as the implemetation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The focus on SDG7, which emphasizes Affordable and Clean Energy, has gained momentum due to the dual challenges of a swift post-pandemic economic recovery and the ongoing Ukraine conflict.
Recent coverage of Spain in the international press has been mainly focused on its national parliamentary elections. However, there’s more to be interested in, as the country has taken over the rotating presidency of the European Union as of July 1st. This is particularly intriguing for Hungary since it marks the beginning of an 18-month presidency trio involving Spain, Belgium, and Hungary. What can we expect in terms of green policies in the program that culminates in Hungary’s presidency in 2024?
The Green Policy Center, under the umbrella of the MIRROR project, aims to help Hungary prepare for the 2023 review of its National Energy and Climate Plan with modelling-based proposals. Below is a list of key messages and proposed targets for Hungary and sectoral policy proposals.
“What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up? This question not only concerns the environment in isolation; the issue cannot be approached piecemeal. (…) Why are we here? What is the goal of our work and all our efforts? What need does the earth have of us? (…) Unless we struggle with these deeper issues” – says the Pope, “I do not believe that our concern for ecology will produce significant results.” Laudato Si’ Encyclical Letter
