We’ll meet policymakers, environmental activists, and industry leaders who have their sights set on a greener future. From the automotive industry to the steelmaking sector, we’ll explore the pitfalls and breakthroughs of implementing environmentally friendly technologies. Will the Green Deal be enough to catalyze change, or is it just a pipe dream? Join us on this journey to find out.
