The Hungarian justice minister stated that the cost of environmental protection should not be imposed on the poorest countries or the most vulnerable members of societies, but primarily borne by major polluting countries and corporations.
Environmental protection and sustainability have been integral to shaping Europe’s future for decades. The theme and policy framework of the green transition are among the most prominent programmes of the European Commission’s activities, and they have not been overshadowed by the pandemic or the Russo-Ukrainian war, Minister for Regional Development Tibor Navracsics said at the GreenTech exhibition and conference in Zalaegerszeg.
The name change may be a desperate attempt to lure away the few voters LMP, Hungary’s only professedly green party, still has, as polls regularly measure close to zero support for the party in the entire population, with Nézőpont having recorded a support of one per cent in February.
Some experts warned European countries more than a decade ago that their energy supply was based on ‘thin ice’ which could make the European Union vulnerable in a situation of geopolitical tension. But the EU has still not woken up from her “sleeping beauty” dream, and this mistake could be a serious blow to green hopes.
