As an open and inclusive initiative, the Pact will evolve and grow thanks to the creativity, needs and ideas of those becoming part of it.
Why do we need a Climate Pact?
The climate crisis is real and affects all of us but everyone can contribute to find solutions.
The EU is taking action to fight climate change. But laws and policies won’t be enough alone. Our everyday choices matter. Climate action is an opportunity for everyone to improve our lives, our economy and our society.
