We need an EU climate leader
We launched a major campaign calling on the new European leaders - MEPs and the new European Commission, including President Ursula von der Leyen and Franz Timmermans responsible for the European Green Deal, a plan to initiate a green transition in Europe - to really tackle climate change and initiate a just transition for the planet and people. In alliance with members, WeMove Europe gGmbH mobilized citizens to contact these European leaders via hundreds of phone calls, thousands of emails and tweets.
WeMove Europe gGmbH helped to open doors for young people to meet MEPs and Commissioners in the entrance hall of the EP building in Brussels and start an engaged debate on how to save the environment from the threats posed by climate change. These forms of showups contributed to the European Parliament declaring a state of climate emergency and the European Commission has committed to make climate change the official top priority in issuing a Green Deal within the first 100 years of its mandate.
The alliance gathered more than 76,000 signatures.
