The fight against climate change is at the heart of the Green European Foundation’s mission. To tackle the climate emergency, the foundation offers a multi-perspective approach which examines both the economic and social implications of climate change. The aim of its activities on this topic is to empower citizens, activists and politicians who want to deepen their knowledge and boost their actions in this field.
GEF promotes a fair, transparent and sustainable energy transition in Europe. It analyses examples and solutions already implemented in Europe as part of the energy transition. In this way, it supports the development of sustainable energy policies at the European level and its transition away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energies, as well as a democratic and participative approach to the energy transition.
In parallel GEF looks at the impact of climate change on a variety of aspects of our lives – may it be how and what we work, what we eat and where we get our food from, or the effects a changing climate can have on migratory movements all over the world.
