Advanc­ing cli­mate action is one of the over­ar­ch­ing pri­or­i­ties of both the Euro­pean Green Deal and the EU’s coro­n­avirus recov­ery fund, but vary­ing lev­els of urgency in dif­fer­ent nation­al con­texts hin­der progress. To effec­tive­ly mobi­lize Euro­pean cit­i­zens, EU lead­ers will need to go beyond the exist­ing soft con­sen­sus on cli­mate change and imple­ment strate­gic, coun­try-spe­cif­ic action plans. Carnegie Europe, d|part, and the Open Soci­ety Euro­pean Pol­i­cy Insti­tute are delight­ed to invite you to a vir­tu­al event for the launch of “From Cli­mate Aware­ness to Cli­mate Action”, a report that takes stock of cli­mate-change per­cep­tions in sev­en Euro­pean coun­tries and iden­ti­fies poli­cies that could gen­er­ate broad pub­lic sup­port for cli­mate action.
