On the 31st May 2016 GreenBuzz Berlin organised and hosted a Sustainability Panel Discussion on the subject of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and its impact on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This agreement is currently being negotiated between the European Union (EU) and the United States of America (USA). Commenting on why the topic was chosen Carolin Kruse, a board member of GreenBuzz Berlin notes that “there is so little information about the agreement and in particular on its impact on sustainability, that our aim with the event, was to put it more into focus and to enable discussion”.
Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership: Five Major Concerns by Ken Fullerton has been published at the International Development Journal on Sustainability Panel #03: TTIP and its impact on the sustainable development goals.
