null EEAC Workshop, Brussels

The EEAC Network (The European Environment and Sustainable Development Advisory Councils)
organises a one-day working session in Brussels on Thursday February 13 2020 on the European
Green Deal, which was presented last December. Gábor Bartus, the NFFT’s secretary and co-chair of the EEAC’s working group will attend the session.


The working session will discuss the opportunities and the potential impacts of the European Green Deal, not only at European but also at national and local level.
Attendants at the working session will include experts from the IDDRI, the IEEP (International
Institute for Educational Planning), the EESC-SDO (Sustainable Development Observatory) and the
EPC (European Policy Center). The working session will share the overall assessment of the Green
Deal’s content and potential as well as more sector specific analyses.
Ursula von der Leyen, the new president of the European Commission introduced the climate
protection programme, worth EUR 100 million, last December. The EC’s president stressed that the Commission intends to mobilise EUR 100 million in order to help the economies of the EU to become more environmentally friendly to be able to fight the impacts of the climate change.


The European Green Deal is on the one hand about cutting emissions but on the other hand it is
about creating jobs and boosting innovation. Its goal is to reconcile the EU’s economies with our
planet.

Human

Nagy kép

Every generation needs human resources: knowledgeable and skilful individuals in appropriate quantity and in good health. Society cannot afford to lose the skills of the disadvantaged groups. Although there is no relevant statistical data, economic value of the human capital likely exceeded that of the material capital around the turn of the millennium, rendering humans the most important resources of the nation.

Natural

Nagy kép

Ecosystem services provided by natural resources are direct and indirect benefits for society, produced by natural and human-regulated ecosystems. Amongst the benefits are provisioning services (food, animal feed, raw material), natural cycle regulating services (climate stabilization, pollination, flood control), supporting services (nutrient cycling, soil formation), and cultural services (recreation, education, art inspiration).

Economic

Nagy kép
The basis of a society’s material growth is economic resources: physical capital, financial capital as storage and transmitter of value, technological knowledge in the form of intellectual property and know-how, and built environment. Entrepreneurs become the cornerstones of sustainable development by discovering the unexploited forms of value creation and managing the utilization of the majority of human, natural and human-created physical resources.

Social

Nagy kép
Moral norms and values, relationships and trust between individuals, as well as organizations, institutions, cultural activities and cultural heritage make up the social resources of a nation. Social capital is the result of historical development, therefore its quality is largely determined by the relation of individuals and organizations to the crucial stages of this development (national history), as well as to the intellectual and material recollections (cultural heritage).
