Launch of the European Public Policy Conference (EPPC) 2020

The European Public Policy Conference is student-run initiative of the Hertie School and the IPLI Foundation. The 12th annual EPPC, titled “Our Climate, our Future: Exploring policy responses to climate change!”, will be a platform for discussion between climate leaders, policy makers, experts and visionary graduate students on innovative solutions on the future of climate policy-making.

Join us for more detailed information on the EPPC 2020 and start of enrolment. The launch event will be opened by Juan Auz (Hertie School, Co-Founder of Terra Mater and former Executive Director of Fundación Pachamama).

The European Public Policy Conference 2020 will be held from the 27th to the 28th of March 2020 in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, and will focus on a pressing issues going beyond our borders, our cultural distinctions and our economics – climate change.
As our society wakes up to the challenges of a changing climate, movements and protests are arising all around the world and sustainability has become a fundamental part of the public debate. In this scenario, the role of policy makers is ever more crucial. Immediate, effective, and coordinated solutions are required to mitigate side effects and adapt to future conditions. In order to ensure future governance and collaboration among private and public actors, policy makers must consider different stakeholders’ perspectives in their approach towards sustainable transitions to create comprehensive recommendations for future policymaking.

To tackle a range as wide as possible, the conference will be broken down into three conceptual areas:

- Energy, Goods and Food
- Inequalities
- International Politics

A broad combination of setups like panel discussions, keynotes as well as workshops will support the active role that both speakers and participants, will have in developing a mutual learning environment and in shaping participative solutions.

To discover the thematic areas, please check out the Position Paper or simply browse through EPPC's website.

Prior registration is not required. This event is open to the Hertie Community only.
