The IJP and CLEW are organising a web-event series for journalists to provide them with insights into how the COVID-19 crisis and the debate over green stimulus programmes are linked in different regions around the world. The idea behind the web-event series is to connect journalists and allow them to learn from each other.
This web-event on Central- and Eastern Europe will be the first of the series. We will cover different regions in future events.
