Become a Climate Pact Ambassador

The Climate Emergency is an issue we have learned to be aware of especially in the last few years. Despite the urgency of it being the core activity of many NGOs all around the word, it is thanks to the more recent acts of protesting that we are now arising our awareness as a community. The impact of Fridays for Future has been so huge that the message hit the governments themselves. With the result being public declarations of commitment in the fight to support the climate emergency.

Are you wondering what you can do yourself? The answer comes from the European Union. The European Climate Pact is part of the European Green Deal and is meant to be a lively space to share information, debate and act on the climate crisis. It offers support for a European climate movement to grow and consolidate.

What is the European Climate Pact?

  • develop and implement solutions
  • connect with others and maximise the impact of these solutions

As part of the European Green Deal, the Pact aims to become a lively space to share information, debate and act on the climate crisis, and offer support for a European climate movement to grow and consolidate.
