Boosting non-state climate action

Energy, Environment and Climate
Date: Monday, 04 December 2017

Venue: European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), contact organisers for location details  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

Private companies, workers' associations, farmers, different kinds of civil society organisations, and informal groups of European citizens demonstrate, everywhere in Europe and in the world, that it is possible to develop effective low-carbon transition projects, beneficial both in terms of their climate impact and their economic aspect - many of them addressing social inclusion. These projects require tangible support if the international community is to meet the COP21 Paris Agreement's mandate to stabilize the planet's temperature.

Following its Opinion on "Coalition to deliver commitments of the Paris Agreement", in October 2016 the EESC organised a conference "Designing a framework for bottom-up climate action" with the goal to exchange best practices and to pinpoint where hurdles and obstacles prevent or slow down non-state actors' commitment to fight against climate change.

The purpose of the 4th of December public hearing is to follow-up on activities carried out last year and to gather recommendations for the opinion the EESC is currently working on entitled "Boosting climate actions by non-state actors", that would be principally addressed to the political decision-makers at different levels, in order to practically align the policies to the needs of non-state climate actors.
