VOTE FOR CLIMATE

This is a crucial moment for the #EUClimateLaw negotiations. A moment in which, to be successful, we need to stay ambitious. But some negotiators want to rush a deal, cutting some of its fundamental aspects at the costs of our climate. Help us achieve the best deal - use our tool to send a tweet to your minister.

Why we must stop biometric surveillance in the EU

EDRi (the European Digital Rights network) has launched a European Citizen's Initiative calling for a ban on the use of biometric mass surveillance in public spaces. How could these technologies affect the lives of everyday people?

PROTECT AND RESTORE THE WORLD’S FORESTS

Forests are indispensable. They cover 30 percent of the earth’s land area and host 80 percent of the world’s land-based species. Forests provide us with fresh water and oxygen, and are essential for regulating the global climate. We want a world with forests, where we can all breathe and enjoy nature as it should be - unspoiled.

BUT DEFORESTATION IS STILL HAPPENING
Forests are being devastated at an alarming rate. Every year, we lose an area of forest about the size of Greece. The main reason is the expansion of agriculture. The EU is responsible for around 10 percent of global deforestation through its consumption of products like soya, beef, palm oil and cocoa.

A HOME FOR EVERYONE

We want a housing system that works for people. Where everyone across Europe, from Paris to Warsaw, Dublin to Athens, has access to affordable, quality, healthy homes. We should all be able to rent a home without the “airbnb effect” driving up monthly prices, and we should even be able to buy a home, just like many of our parents and grandparents were able to do.

Our vision of the Conference on the Future of Europe

After months of negotiations, an agreement was eventually found between the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Council to start the Conference on the Future of Europe. We welcome this long-waited outcome and are now putting all our efforts in making the Conference a successful democratic process that delivers change and drives Europe closer to its citizens.
