Everyone counts to make our voice loud and clear to encourage our leaders to take bold steps in the fight against climate change and biodiversity loss, as they are finalising the Climate Law, negotiating the next MFF and so much more!
You may know it already, Greta Thumberg, accompanied by Anuna De Wever and Adélaïde Charlier, of Youth for Climate, will lead the march!
The European dimension of this March is directly linked to the current political context surrounding the European Green Deal: our march aims at showing that we want a European Union, with the Green Deal, that leads the way in the fight against climate change and biodiversity loss, and that the necessary financial investments should be granted to ensure a just transition for all.
Greta Thumberg accepted the invitation of Ms. von der Leyen, the Commission President, to meet the College on Wednesday to express her views. She will meet in the afternoon M. Sassoli, President of the European Parliament where she will also deliver a speech. Let’s show her our support in attending massively this march!
- 13h30, Gathering of EU staff in Brussels at PARC ROYAL, next to the royal theatre, by the fountain with flashmob, songs, pictures... We want to be seen and heard!
A few EUStaff4Climate T-shirts are still available at the price of 20 euros, first come, first served.
- Don’t forget your phone for pictures, your EUSTaff4Climate T-Shirt (or wear something BLUE!), your flags, your creative banners!
- We suggest putting an out-of-office message ‘I am currently participating in the European March for Future to show my concern as individual and civil servant on the climate and ecological emergency’. You could also put the same reason if your Sysper request in case you enter a leave or recuperation.
Please, circulate this email as widely as possible! All Colleagues are more than welcome!
We very much look forward to seeing you!
