FT Weekend Debate: Is Europe losing the race to lead the green future?

Pilita Clark, Jesse Norman, Bianca Dragomir, Gonzalo Delacámara and María Margarete Gosse in conversation with Frederick Studemann

Venue: IE University

After decades of leading the drive towards a green economy, Europe is now falling behind China - and faces the prospect of also being overtaken by the US. Beijing is already an electric vehicle, solar and wind juggernaut and has a growing stranglehold on critical minerals. Now, Joe Biden's ground-breaking Inflation Reduction Act is changing the global green game, luring business, investment and jobs to America. Europe is responding. But is it really up to the fight? Join Jesse Norman, UK transport, technology and decarbonisation minister, Pilita Clark, Financial Times columnist and associate editor, Bianca Dragomir, director of Clean Tech for Iberia, Gonzalo Delacámara, an international expert on water and energy economics, and María Margarete Goose, German Ambassador in Spain, in conversation with Frederick Studemann, FT Literary editor.

Event with simultaneous translation from English to Spanish.
