EU Climate Action Dialogues

Project Description

The EU has agreed to become climate neutral by 2050. Achieving climate neutrality in the next 30 years is a great societal, economic and political undertaking, with many challenges and opportunities. This project addresses two processes that are central to it: (1) The Future of the EU (2) and the development and implementation of national long-term climate strategies. In both instances, the project combines analysis with dialogue to inform political debate. The project aims to strengthen the strategic dimension of the EU climate policy by:

  • anchoring climate and energy issues more firmly in the EU reform debate in general and the Conference on the Future of Europe in particular, to promote the aspiration of a low-carbon economy and society ultimately becomes as a trademark that guides the EU – connecting innovation, sustainability and climate protection to values such as prosperity, solidarity, democracy and the rule of law (Part 1); and
  • supporting the development of robust and politically credible long-term climate planning frameworks in all EU MS, strengthening the long-term orientation in near-term climate policy and creating a lasting positive effect on long-term climate planning and governance capacities in CEE and SEE
