Margot Wallström, EU Environment Commissioner, is hosting a live internet chat on 3 February. Anyone who would like to pose a question or share their views on EU environmental policy is invited to participate.
Wallström is seeking a “frank and open debate” on the topic of What sort of environment do we want for Europe?. Questions can be submitted in advance or during the live chat to take place from 6 to 8pm (Central European Time).
