ALDA Secretary General Antonella Valmorbida will be among the keynote speakers at the Webinar “Public Administration as a Green Leader” that will take place on 23 September 2021, via Facebook Live.

In light of the 2021 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report the focus of governance should shift in order to reflect the needs of citizens concerned about climate change and its consequences. One way to do this is to “turn public administration green”. But what does that mean? “Turning public administration green means formulating a vision to be shared with and by the population and upholding a commitment to sacrifice short-term (economic) interests to ensure long-term sustainability. »
