European Elections 2024: Environmental Scorecard (Climate Action Network EUROPE)

Projected Make-Up of EU Parliament Circle

With the upcoming European and local elections, migration is consistently cited as our biggest issue [2][3][4] but is it actually our greatest problem?

Climate change is the single biggest threat to our existence and way of life in all of recorded human history. It is inextricably linked with everything from our life expectancy, food production, healthcare, tourism and of course migration. It is only beginning to cause massive population displacement and forced migration, and this forced migration from climate disasters will absolutely be accelerated massively in the years to come.

Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe is Europe’s leading NGO coalition fighting dangerous climate change. They promote sustainable climate, energy and development policies throughout Europe.

CAN Europe is a regional node of Climate Action Network, the world’s largest environmental network with over 1,700 Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) active in more than 130 countries, driving collective and sustainable action to fight the climate crisis and to achieve social and racial justice by convening and coordinating civil society at the UN climate talks and other international fora.
