Tufts European Horizons: The European Green New Deal: The Solution for a Sustainable Future?

Tufts European Horizons will host a panel on the European Green New Deal.

This promise helped her narrowly obtain confirmation with the support of Green and Socialist members of parliament. This plan seeks to implement many of the same ideas put forward by the Green New Deal in the US Congress.
