New EC consultations launched on climate neutrality & public participation to achieve the Green Deal


Last month, the European Commission launched two online public consultations within the framework of the Green Deal. They aim to increase our ambitions to achieve an EU economy that is sustainable, cleaner, safer and healthier and rising, at the same time, the standards of climate by 2030 and hence to become climate-neutral by 2050 with the active participation of the citizens together with industry, civil society and authorities at all levels.

Water Europe is already working on the Climate Pact consultation with its W.E. Ambassadors to encourage active support from the European institutions in water-related Living Labs, as they are key tools at all levels to encourage broad participation and accelerate the creation and implementation of innovative solutions. It’s also an opportunity to invest in human capital and encourage citizens to get skills and knowledge on water through an active participation. The deadline to provide inputs is 27 May.

In the case of the 2030 Climate Target Plan, the EU Commission aims to gather stakeholders view for increasing the ambition of the EU 2030 reduction emissions: Feedback to the public consultation, deadline 23 June 2020.
