After the UK referendum vote, the EU now needs to embark on an agenda of transformational change. A change that puts the health and interest of people and planet first in everything it does, guided by the global 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris climate deal. NFI supports the requiry for a new course towards sustainability.
Green 10 Open Letter
Successive opinion polls have shown that there is broad support for more action on the environment at EU level. Tackling the global challenges of climate change, the depletion of natural resources, the collapse of ecosystems and the protection of people’s health is best done together, rather than in isolation.
Secondly, the EU needs to remember the fundamental rights and the rule of law it was founded on.
