On Wednesday 22nd January the European Commission released a White Paper outlining its proposal for 2030 EU climate and energy policy.

Leading NGOs including CAN Europe, WWF, Oxfam, Friends of the Earth Europe, Greenpeace, APRODEV, Carbon Market Watch, EEB, HEAL and Women in Europe for a Common Future staged a cry for HELP outside the Commission building! EU Heads of State and Government must put EU climate ambition back on track with what its citizens – and science – are calling for. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions reap large health co-benefits.

EU Climate Action Lost at Sea
Campaigners lying on the ground were spelling out SOS while other volunteers, wearing life vests and blowing whistles, were holding signs that spell out “CLIMATE SOS” around a life raft, all in front of the European Commission sign. Other people inside the life raft were holding signs for help in various languages – English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Polish, Italian and Greek.
