Communities are already experiencing the impacts of man-made climate change, especially in the Global South, but also increasingly here in Europe. The overconsumption of resources is contributing to the climate crisis and increasing inequality within and between countries.
Europe was largely responsible for causing climate change. Friends of the Earth Europe believes European and other rich industrialised countries must do their fair share to act first and fastest to combat it in ways that do not deepen social injustice.
Real solutions to climate change are available. We are working to strengthen a movement for climate justice and create a fossil free Europe.
