Promises must be met with climate action this decade

Talks at the COP26 UN Climate Conference have resulted in a series of ill-defined promises and announcements, insufficient to keep global temperature rises below 1.5°C. We are still far from reducing our global emissions by 45% by 2030. The Greens/EFA Group also criticises the last-minute change submitted by China and India to further weaken the text on the necessary phase-out of coal and of fossil fuels subsidies.

Gender and COP26: Why the climate summit should be on every feminist’s agenda

Gender justice cannot be sidelined when debating the future of our planet. It’s time for governments and institutions to take note, and put gender equality at the heart of any viable strategies on climate and ecology.

CLIMATE JUSTICE AT COP26? Why we need an intersectional approach to climate activism

The climate crisis is affecting some parts of the planet more than others. But especially those most affected people and areas are not represented adequately at the COP in Glasgow. Continue reading to find out why intersectionality and representation at COP26 matters.

Let’s clean up finance in Glasgow

Taking the Paris Agreement seriously means immediately stopping public and private finance for fossil fuel activities. Every cent spent on fossil fuel infrastructure hinders the transition towards a climate neutral economy and carries a major risk of becoming a stranded asset in the near future.

Pär Holmgren
Opinion by Pär Holmgren

The Future Is Happening Now. We can still fix it.

As tens of thousands of people in every big city march for climate justice, world leaders, ministers and other political delegates are getting ready to pack their bags to attend the climate conference in Glasgow, COP26. Call on them to keep the 1.5° C target within reach

Greens/EFA demands for the COP 26

Glasgow needs to be the moment that marks the end to fossil fuel investments, both public and private. Every cent spent on fossil fuel infrastructure hinders the transition towards a climate neutral economy.

Overcoming the COP26 Gaps: A Transformed EU External Action for a Climate-Just World

The event will present the findings of an E3G report commissioned by the Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament. The study shows how the European Green Deal can be mobilised to secure an EU foreign policy aligned with the Paris Agreement and capable of accelerating the transition towards a climate-just world for all.
