What is the European Climate Pact?
The European Climate Pact will help us all shape the green Europe we want. Have your say, contribute and play your part! All stakeholders need to work together to tackle climate change and environmental degradation and to grasp the opportunities arising from decisive action and sustainable lifestyles.
The Pact’s main objectives are twofold:
- Spreading awareness
- Supporting action
The Pact will connect people and organisations from all walks of life to:
- improve our understanding of climate and environmental challenges
- develop solutions big and small
- find ways to influence and change behaviours
- trigger and scale-up positive change
We are not starting from scratch. The Climate Pact wants to provide a fertile ground to existing initiatives, networks and movements that have already begun to revolutionise the approach to climate action in Europe.
