Katja Rosenbohm is Head of Communications (COM) at the European Environment Agency (EEA) and is responsible for the EEA communication strategy and its implementation. Katja holds a university degree in geophysics and has worked for 25 years within the Environment and Energy sectors. Climate and environment action is a top priority for Europe in 2020, as a European Green Deal will start to roll out. To achieve carbon neutrality, a circular economy, a zero pollution ambition and a fair society, we need to rethink, redesign and rebuild the key systems that underpin our economies and everyday lives, starting with the energy, food and mobility systems. These transformative changes require making the right investments to scale up and speed up truly sustainable solutions, while phasing out or altogether stopping unsustainable and polluting practices.
