MEP Morten Helveg: Interreg and the North Sea region are crucial in achieving climate targets

Danish MEP Morten Helveg Petersen underlines the importance of Interreg programmes and the North Sea region in battling climate change.

"The North Sea is a big and important resource because it can provide enough renewable energy to supply almost all of Europe. Interreg is an important partner, and an important institution, because we need to cooperate across borders," Helveg says.
