Satellite events


To capture the wealth and diversity of climate action in Europe, we are inviting everybody to organise Climate Pact satellite events.


Such events – big and small, local and EU-wide – are a space to hold discussions in various languages, reach out to local communities, focus on specific topics or highlight the role of particular groups or sectors in the Climate Pact.


Excited to organise your own satellite event? We will publish the calendar online and promote it on social media.

What is the European Climate Pact?


The European Climate Pact will help us all shape the green Europe we want.


Have your say, contribute and play your part!


We need to work together to tackle climate change and environmental degradation and to grasp the opportunities arising from decisive action and sustainable lifestyles.


The Pact’s main objectives are twofold:


  • Spreading awareness
  • Supporting action

The Pact will connect people and organisations from all walks of life to:


  • improve our understanding of climate and environmental challenges
  • develop solutions big and small
  • find ways to influence and change behaviours
  • trigger and scale-up positive change

We are not starting from scratch. The Climate Pact wants to provide a fertile ground to existing initiatives, networks and movements that have already begun to revolutionise the approach to climate action in Europe.


Stay tuned: keep an eye on our website for upcoming developments!
