Transatlantic cohesion has never been more essential. This year’s G7 Summit, hosted by the UK in June, could demonstrate the West’s common resolve to tackle the two global emergencies of the day – the Covid-19 pandemic, and the climate crisis. It is hoped that cooperation between the US, UK, and the EU can be enhanced by a shared understanding of global power shifts, including economic and commercial, strategic, and military and security.
The EU Delegation to the UK invites you to attend this public event, to hear from a panel of renowned foreign-policy experts. The webinar will showcase US, UK, and European priorities in the run-up to the G7 Summit. Audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions.
