EU FUNDS: Assets or Liabilities?
Is the EU putting citizen’s money where it is most needed?

Wednesday 13 April 2011
PHS 7C50, 14.00 - 18.00
Public hearing followed by a cocktail reception


Co-hosted by: Michalis Tremopoulos (Greens/ EFA); João Ferreira (GUE); Gerben-Jan
Gerbrandy (ALDE); Jo Leinen (S&D); Sirpa Pietikäinen (EPP);


2011 will be marked by policy reforms in Europe and the next Multi-annual Financial Framework (MFF) 2014-2020 will be an important step to coherently and strategically support policies which will provide money for public goods.
As the EU faces economic turmoil and a global ecological crisis, a better and more focused use of scarce financial resources is paramount. In the last financial framework, the EU broadly failed to

match real funding to its sustainable development ambitions.
Following the launch of a leading environmental NGOs publication for a comprehensive vision for a greener, fairer, and more effective EU budget ["Changing perspectives: How the EU budget can shape a sustainable future"], a cross-party public hearing will be held to discuss the potential for
the EU budget to provide for green jobs, and tuned to tackling the core environmental challenges of our time: climate change, biodiversity loss and resource inefficiency.
