Friends of the Earth Malta is collecting signatures for an EU-wide petition ahead of COP27 to encourage policy makers to push for a sustainable future centred around wellbeing and peace for all.
At COP27, we will demand to the EC President Ursula von der Leyen the following actions:
1. Keep global warming under 1.5°C by achieving EU climate neutrality by 2040, accelerating the transition process towards the use of clean and renewable energy and stop financing fossil fuels;
2. Shift towards a socially and ecologically just wellbeing economy beyond GDP indicators, putting the interests of society and nature above those of corporations;
3. Protect climate change-induced migrants through a human rights-based migration policy and provide most vulnerable communities with financial and technical support;
4. Enable youth participation to integrate bottom-up views into political decision-making by creating Youth Councils in the EU and Member States.
Let our voice be heard, let us show the future we want for our planet and for the people – a thriving future for everyone. All this can start with your signature, be the #ClimateOfChange!
