Save the Date! Launch of Communities for Future

Tuesday 29th September 2020, 9h30-12h CEST (8.30am-11am BST)

Communities for Future is a new, integrated Europe-wide programme to inspire, empower and enable local community-led responses to the climate and ecological emergency.

The launch of Communities for Future will explore the potential of communities to revive local economies as we emerge from the pandemic in a way that takes account of the deepening climate and ecological crises and the urgent need for deeper societal transformation.

It recognises that there is no one solution fits all. Engaging citizens locally, and bridging divides, creating interaction between rural and urban, young and old, North and South and East and West Europe, are an essential part of the mission.

Within the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and the commitments towards the Paris Agreement, the European Green Deal and the Sustainable Development Goals, this online event will bring together Members of the European Parliament, as well as representatives of the European Commission, the European Economic and Social Committee, the Committee of the Regions, national, regional and local government representatives, together with representatives of community-led initiatives and other NGOs.

Communities for Future values and puts communities and citizens at the centre of the conversation.
