Challenging assumptions and status quo: What needs to change and how much needs to change in order for us to reach 1,5°C or 2°C climate goals? And who can implement this change? What are we doing well, and where are we failing? These are some of the overarching questions we have been asking the various European experts in the field of business and innovation, industry, research and civil society. People with experience, and understanding of the EU policy world come together in this series to discuss real ways forward.
