ENI CBC Med at Youth Dialogue with Virginijus Sinkevičius, European Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries
ENI CBC Med joined the Youth Dialogue with Virginijus Sinkevičius, European Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries held last 30 of May in Brusells to kick off the 2022 EU Greek Week.
Ms. Laura Chillerón Ferrer from Spain, intern at the ENI CBC Med Branch Office in Valencia, was selected together with other 30 young people from all corners of Europe to take part in a debate with Commissioner Sinkevičius to talk about the role of youth in protecting nature and biodiversity and how the EU institutions are acting for a greener Europe.
Commissioner Sinkevičius replied to the questions raised by the group of young people on challenges such as biodiversity loss, climate change or pollution, including the question of Laura Chillerón Ferrer. She asked Commissioner Sinkevičius about the phenomenon of desertification – which has increased by 1% each
year during the past 50 years – and how we can work together with our Southern Mediterranean Neighbours to better address this issue.
