With the Green Deal coming up, and 2021 being declared Year of the Rail, all eyes are on how we are going to radically re-think transport over short- and medium distances in Europe.
With aviation emissions increasing by 5% every year, railways could become a sustainable alternative. To this end, the Young Democrats, the political youth party affiliated with D66, part of the Renew Europe faction, have drafted a Railroad to the Future: a plan for the development of an European high-speed rail network.
In this panel discussion (sponsored by Renew Europe), this plan will be formally handed over to Jan-Christoph Oetjen as representative of the European Parliament. Various European politicians, such as Sophie in ’t Veld, and professionals will be present to discuss the plan.
