EU40 MEPs meet Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevičius

On the 23rd of January, we had the honour to organise an informal talk with EU Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries, Virginijus Sinkevičius and 13 of our young MEPs in the European Parliament.  

The discussion addressed different topics regarding youth in politics and the future challenges that the Commissioner will face on the implementation of the recent approve Green Deal. 

Our MEPs had the opportunity to expose their concern and priorities in an informal and brainstorming conversation in which each part shows that there is a large middle ground for strong collaboration between the Commission and the Parliament in this field. 

Commissioner Sinkevičius shared with us his ambition to elaborate a strong communication plan with influential ambassadors, conscious that it is essential to have strategic communication to broadcast the urgency of the need to act regarding the environment.  

We are pleased to say that the debate finished in a positive note and the Commissioner transmitted his will to continue the conversation periodically during this legislation.
