Shaping the Climate Transition: Citizens take the floor

On 29 April 2022, European citizens will take centre stage and present their recommendations on the Climate Transition to EVP Timmermans.

The objective of the event is to learn about citizens’ concerns, views and recommendations, and the trade-offs they are willing to accept for the climate transition. The results of both processes will not only reach the European Commission, but also feed into the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE).


10:00 CET - Opening
10:05 CET - Energy Transition citizen dialogue with Frans Timmermans
10:45 CET - Food & Consumption citizen dialogue with Jean-Eric Paquet (DG R&I) & Clara De La Torre (DG CLIMA)
11:15 CET - Sustainable Mobility citizen dialogue with Jean-Eric Paquet (DG R&I) & Clara De La Torre (DG CLIMA)
11:45 CET - Closing

Tune in on the Conference on the Future of Europe website to watch the event live.

Background information

Other Action 9 “Support to the engagement of European Citizens in the transition to the European Green Deal (EGD),” funded through the Horizon 2020 European Green Deal Call, set up 27 representative national-level citizen debates – one per Member State – to collect ideas and recommendations from across the Union, in order to elaborate “a roadmap for the climate transition with the active participation of citizens”.
Here you will find more information.

DG CLIMA invited citizens across Europe to have semi-structured, self-organised climate debates in familiar environments, the so-called Peer Parliaments. As part of the European Climate Pact, hundreds of private small group deliberations have taken place and their hosts reported the outcomes back to DG CLIMA via a web platform.
