European Climate Pact: Youth Involvement
A unique opportunity to discuss with DG Clima how young generation can contribute to the European Climate Pact. The European Climate Pact is a new initiative of the European Commission which aims to engage citizens and communities in action for our climate and environment.
Time & Location
Jul 02, 2020, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
About the event
The transition to a climate-neutral society is both a challenging task and an opportunity to build a better future for all. It is about people and their daily lives: how we produce, consume, move, heat or cool our houses, work and live together.
Alongside government policies and regulation, citizens, communities and organisations in all sectors of our society and economy have their part to play.
To this end, as part of the European Green Deal, the Commission will launch a European Climate Pact to give everyone a voice and space to design new climate actions, share information, launch grassroots activities and showcase solutions that others can follow.
The European Climate Pact aims to inform, inspire and foster cooperation between people and organisations ranging from national, regional and local authorities to businesses, unions, civil society organisations, educational institutions, research and innovation organisations, consumer groups and individuals.
We are delighted that Sylwia Borkowska-Waszak from DG Clima accepted our invitation to present the Climate Pact to the YEP_BXL with a special focus on the involvement of the young generation.
Young generation will be the one to bear the challenges if we do not act against the climate change. That's why (not only) the Young Energy Professioanls should be actively involved and use the opportunity to discuss with DG Climate action how we can seize the potential of the European Climate Pact!
The debate will be held online on the 2nd July at 10:00.
Looking forward to see you all.
