We all have our own worlds. Our world could be the house we live in or the community we are part of, or it could be the family we love, the work we do, or the region we come from.
Whatever your world is, climate change is affecting it – because of the impact on our environment that we are already experiencing, and because of the changes we need to make as a society to ensure a better future for everyone.
The good news is that each of us can do something in our own world every day to reduce the effects on the environment and to move towards living more sustainably – a shift that brings with it benefits and new opportunities. While many of our actions may seem small in isolation, taken together the impact is far bigger than in our individual world.
The European Climate Pact encourages everyone to act. It is a movement of people united around a common cause, each taking steps in their own worlds to build a more sustainable Europe for us all. Launched by the European Commission, the Pact is part of the European Green Deal and is helping the EU to meet its goal to be the first climate-neutral continent in the world by 2050.
