GREEN EUROPE

Fighting climate change, improving air quality, protecting unique natural places, ending plastic pollution and stopping toxic chemicals from reaching the market: the EU helps keep us safe.

EU citizens demand a better, greener Europe

The European Elections are a chance to help shape the kind of Europe we want. This year its especially important that people who want an inclusive, safe and sustainable Europe turn out to vote on 23-26 May.

Of the upcoming European Parliament, we demand:

1. CLEAN AIR AND ENERGY.   

The EU has taken eight governments to court for their failure to tackle toxic air pollution but EU limits are still breached in 130 cities in 23 countries.

2. HEALTHY FOOD AND FARMING.

80% of Europeans think sustainable farming is an important issue at this election, yet the EU spends more than €50bn on agriculture each year with little regard for nature. 

3. CLEAN AND GREEN CITIES.

Plastic plates, straws, stirrers, cutlery, cups and other single-use items will be banned in the EU by 2021, but couldn’t more be done to end plastic pollution.
