UBLIC CONSULTATION – Adapting to Climate Change: an EU Strategy

28.05.2020. The European Green Deal aims to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent in the world.

Climate impacts are already being felt across Europe and are likely to increase even further in intensity and frequency. Without drastic emission reduction measures, continued climate change could increase the likelihood of serious, widespread and irreversible consequences, such as the collapse of natural ecosystems, the erosion of global food security or the displacement of people. The Commission therefore believes it is important to bring together a wide range of stakeholder views for the new Strategy to inform the design and policy options explored, as well as the appropriate level of ambition.

You can contribute and participate in this call through the following link:

Europe is affected by indirect climate impacts outside the Union in many ways, such as trade, spread of infections and supply chains or migration.

The ultimate goal of climate change adaptation strategies is to protect people, the planet and prosperity from environmental impacts. By promoting global adaptation actions together with accelerated emission reductions, the EU can help ensure the well-being of EU citizens, safeguard our natural environment and cultural heritage, and protect our investments and economic assets.

Feedback period from 14 May 2020 to 20 August 2020

PUBLIC CONSULTATION: The European Climate Pact aims to involve citizens and communities in climate and environmental action.

28.05.2020. The transition to a climate-neutral society is a challenging task because it is about people and their daily lives: how we produce, consume, move, heat or cool our homes, work and live together. Along with government policies and regulations, citizens, communities and organizations in all sectors of society and economy have their role to play.

To this end and as part of the European Green Deal, the Commission will launch a European Climate Pact to give everyone a voice and space to design climate actions, share information, launch grassroots activities and showcase solutions that others can follow.

Through communication activities and events and by using multiple channels and tools, the Covenant will create awareness and understanding of climate change based on sound scientific evidence. It will also inspire individuals and organizations to get involved and encourage sustainable behaviors.

The Commission wants to hear citizens’ ideas for the European Climate Pact and their views on how to make the Pact as effective, inclusive and ambitious as possible. That is why a public consultation is being launched, to shape the final design of the Covenant.

About the European Climate Pact

The European Climate Pact aims to inform, inspire and encourage cooperation between people and organisations ranging from national, regional and local authorities to businesses, trade unions, civil society organisations, educational institutions, research and innovation organisations, consumer groups and individuals.

Direct consultations with citizens could be organised using formats such as citizens’ dialogues, citizens’ assemblies and more. As appropriate, these platforms will be linked to existing initiatives such as the Covenant of Mayors on Climate and Energy or the CITIZENV dialogues with young people across Europe.

The Green Deal is the EU’s new strategy for tackling climate change, designed to make Europe’s economy sustainable, cleaner, safer and healthier.

The vehicle for promoting this broad social mobilization, which brings together people, industry, civil society and public authorities at all levels, will be the ‘Climate Pact’, which will be launched in the third quarter of 2020.

The online public consultation is open until 17 June 2020.
