The European Committee of the Regions is delighted to invite you to our
first Green Deal Hour chat with the Mayor of Warsaw, Rafał Trzaskowski
What exactly is the European Green Deal and what benefits will it bring
to my community? What is the Climate Pact and how can I, as a citizen,
take part and contribute to climate-neutrality? Is the COVID-19 pushing
