Climate justice Building an international movement for climate justice and a fossil free world, in solidarity with communities affected by climate change

In one of the last acts of President Juncker’s administration, the European Commission has today backed 55 new climate-damaging fossil fuel projects, as part of a list of priority energy projects - a move that flies in the face of the climate emergency say Friends of the Earth Europe and Food & Water Europe.

The next few days will help determine whether Czech forests will begin to prepare for climate change, or whether they might further wither away – as Hnuti Duha / Friends of the Earth Czechia take the fight to save Czechia’s forests to parliament.

Czechia’s extensive forests have in recent years faced a barrage of threats - which are only set to intensify with climate change. From deforestation, to hotter temperatures, to more aggressive diseases, drought, and fire.

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 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.
