*Online call to support you to submit to the European Commission's energy consultation*
We all know that Europe needs to stop building fossil fuel infrastructure yesterday to be able to keep the global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees. We also know that we have limited financial resources to help us build a more resilient, sustainable future that puts care for people’s needs at its core. So why are new gas pipelines and LNG (liquefied natural gas) terminals being built all over Europe? And why on earth is the EU still supporting and even giving public money to these fossil gas projects?!
The truth is, an outdated regulation is responsible for the promotion and political prioritization of gas as a fossil fuel across Europe, and this regulation needs to change. And now we have a window of time to change it.
Join Friends of the Earth, Food & Water Action Europe, the Gastivists Collective and Not Here Not Anywhere on June 18th for a participatory online call to get up to speed on the issue and be facilitated to make your own submission to the European Commission in order to change this archaic* legislative barrier which is preventing the transition to a society powered by clean energy.
Let's stand up against the vested interests and lobby groups whose actions are locking us into a fossil fuel future. Have your say - Join us on June 18th.
