Commission Decision on the registration of the proposed citizens' initiative: COMMISSION DECISION

Subject-matter: We call on the European Commission to strengthen action on the climate emergency in line with the 1.5° warming limit. This means more ambitious climate goals and financial support for climate action.
Main objectives: The EU shall adjust its goals (NDC) under the Paris Agreement to an 80% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, to reach net-0 by 2035 and adjust European climate legislation accordingly. An EU Border Carbon Adjustment shall be implemented. No free trade treaty shall be signed with partner countries that do not follow a 1.5° compatible pathway according to Climate Action Tracker. The EU shall create free educational materials’ for all member curricula about the effects of climate change.
Provisions of the Treaties considered relevant by the organisers: Art. 3 TFEU, Art 11 TFEU, Art. 165 TFEU, Art. 166 TFEU, Art 173 TFEU, Art. 191 et seq. TFEU
