Join the Council for a discussion with Vice-President Margot Wallström on the future of transatlantic relations and new prospects for combating climate change. Before being appointed Vice-President of the European Commission, Europe’s executive branch, she served for five years as EU Environment Commissioner where she developed the Union’s overall strategy for sustainable development and was instrumental in concluding the ratification process of the Kyoto protocol. Together with former Irish Prime Minister Mary Robinson and UN Special Envoy on Climate Change Gro Harlem Brundtland, she recently developed the “Road to Copenhagen” climate change initiative to help shape the post-2012 climate change negotiations to be held in the Danish capital in 2009.
