It’s time for climate action: give your contribution to the European Green Deal! The European Commission has launched an online consultation to collect public opinions and information to help Europe become the world’s first climate-neutral continent.
The consultation is now open until June 23rd 2020 (midnight Brussels time). Everyone can take part in the questionnaire: citizens, organisations, academia, authorities… The survey is already available in some of the official EU languages.
The feedback given through the survey will help the European Commission understand the desires of the wide public about new targets and specific policy design to increase climate ambition by 2030. Participants could also share and promote policy briefs and studies relevant to deeper greenhouse gas emission reductions.
The European Commission is seeking to increase the EU’s 2030 target for greenhouse gas emission reductions to at least -50% and towards -55% compared to 1990 levels, which should lead to becoming climate-neutral by 2050. Once agreed upon, the Commission will then propose to include the new target in the recently tabled European Climate Law.
