Nord Stream 2 and Germany’s Precarious Dependency on Russian Gas

March 3 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EST

Amid the tensions with Russia over Ukraine, Germany’s energy dependence and Nord Stream 2 have been major topics of discussion – with in Germany, across Europe, and in the United States. The pipeline has been a controversial subject for years, but in the face of Russian aggression against Ukraine it is being used as leverage to try to get Russia to back down. However, the current moment is part of a longer narrative…

Join 1014 and the American Council on Germany for a discussion that will put the pipeline project and Germany’s energy dependency in a broader context. We will be joined by Sascha Müller-Kraenner, the Executive Director of Deutsche Umwelthilfe e.V. (Environmental Action Germany), an independent non-profit organization that was founded in 1975 and is focused on environmental and consumer protection. This event will be moderated by ACG President Dr. Steven E. Sokol and will be held as part of 1014’s “Two at 1014” series.

(All attendees must show proof that they are fully vaccinated. The wearing of masks is encouraged.)
