Islands face some of the most dramatic consequences of global warming and rising sea levels, including disproportionate biodiversity loss in comparison to the mainland. Islands can not only be pioneers for renewable energy but also on the of mitigation. They can be testing grounds for sustainability practices in various sectors such as clean energy, circular economy, smart mobility, waste management and the blue economy.

MEP Younous Omarjee who worked as rapporteur on the report on EU islands and cohesion policy will be the main speaker in this webinar and give insights on the cohesion policy as well as his work on EU islands.
