European Climate Pact

In December 2020, the European Commission launched the European Climate Pact, an EU-wide initiative inviting people, communities and organisations to participate in climate action and build a greener Europe.

As part of the European Green Deal, the Climate Pact offers a space for everyone to share information, debate and act on the climate crisis, and to be part of an ever-growing European climate movement.


The Pact provides a space for regions, local communities, industry, schools and civil society to share information about climate change and environmental degradation, and how they tackle these existential threats. Through an online platform and citizen dialogues and exchanges, it will foster the link between the digital and green transitions.

In the initial phase, the Pact will focus on four areas offering immediate benefits for the climate and the environment, and also for people’s health and wellbeing: green areas, green mobility, efficient buildings, and green skills.

The Pact’s scope will evolve based on the ideas and contributions of the people and organisations that become part of it.

An annual Climate Pact event will also bring participants together to share their experiences and knowledge, and to shape the Pact’s direction.

The Climate Pact aims to help spread scientifically sound information about climate action and provide practical advice for everyday life choices. It will support local initiatives and encourage climate action pledges by individuals or collectives, thereby helping to mobilise support for those pledges and participation in related climate actions.
