EUstaff4climate

EUstaff4climate is a new bottom-up initiative set up by a number of colleagues from different EU institutions who are seriously concerned about climate change and of the future of our children. It was initiated in connection with the 15 March Climate Strike to show solidarity with the young people, and it managed to gather for that occasion over 100 officers to march together.

EUstaff4climate is now moving to the next step: what can EU staff do on a regular basis for the climate cause? We invite all of you to join our discussion on our vision, objectives and future actions in an open meeting on 4 April, 6.00-7.30 pm, in DM 24 (Rue De Mot 24, room 03/47), see agenda attached.

Finally, the 5th Belgian climate March is taking place on Sunday 31 March, starting at 1pm in Gare du Nord and ending in Schuman, and everybody is welcome to join with friends and families. We will define a common meeting point for EU staff and let you know next week.

Thanks to all for your contribution and feel free to share with other colleagues, every drop counts!

Marche pour le climat - Mars 2019

Les photos de la manifestation

Vendredi 15 mars 2019, à l’appel des « Jeunes pour le climat », le Monde et l’Europe se mobilisent

La question du climat n’est pas celle de la seule jeunesse. Elle nous concerne toutes et tous, et à plus forte raison nous, employés de la Fonction publique européenne, qui avons un accès à l’expertise et à la connaissance scientifique et une capacité de résister aux lobbies anti-climat.

Si l’Union européenne développe la réglementation environnementale et climatique depuis des décennies, aujourd’hui la jeunesse européenne attend beaucoup plus d'elle.

Cette question du climat nous concerne d'autant plus qu'en cette année d'élections européennes, cette année où se discute le budget européen, il est encore possible pour l'Union européenne de répondre aux inquiétudes légitimes et aux demandes de sa jeunesse.

Nous sommes des agents de la Fonction publique européenne, nous sommes citoyennes et citoyens et nous sommes, pour certaines et certains, des parents et des grands parents. Nous sommes donc interpellés à plusieurs titres.

Marchons ensemble avec les jeunes pour le climat, et avec tous celles et ceux qui aujourd’hui les rejoignent.

La question de la lutte contre le changement climatique doit être menée à l’échelle européenne, car c’est à cette échelle que nous pourrons y répondre le plus efficacement et le plus solidairement possible. Si chacune et chacun peut faire quelque chose à son niveau individuel ou collectif, depuis notre position, nous sommes bien placés pour faire évoluer la politique climatique.

Marchons pour que l’Europe prenne à bras le corps la question du défi climatique et de ses conséquences. Mobilisons-nous !

U4U défilera dans le cortège qui s’organise à Bruxelles le 15 mars prochain et appelle tous les collègues à le rejoindre.

U4U appelle les collègues à se joindre au cortège: lieu de rassemblement pour la Fonction publique européenne, 12h30, sur la Place Charles ROGIER, devant le N°16

U4U appelle tous les collègues, où qu’ils soient en Europe ou en délégation, à exprimer leur soutien : nous vous invitons à nous envoyer par boîte email des photos de vous soutenant cette action.

On Friday the 15th of March, the world and Europe will stand with young people for the climate

Climate change is not just an issue that affects the youth. It concerns each and every single one of us, especially us, as employees of the European Civil Service, who have access to the expertise and scientific knowledge that allow us resist lobbies against the fight for the climate.

Despite the environmental and climate regulations implemented by the European Union over the last few decades, the Youth of today’s Europe demand more.

The issue of climate change is especially momentous this year with the upcoming European elections, a year the European budget will be discussed too. It is still possible for the European Union to respond to the legitimate concerns and demands of its young people.

We are European Civil Servants, we are citizens, and many of us are parents and grand-parents. We are therefore challenged in many ways.

Let’s march together with our young people, and with all others who will join them, for the climate.

The fight against climate change must be addressed at a European level, because only at this level can we address the issue and respond to it in the most efficient and unified manner possible. With the positions we hold, if each us endeavours to take action, individually or collectively, we will be well positioned to influence environmental policies.

Let’s march to encourage Europe to tackle the issue of climate change and its consequences! It’s our time to act!

U4U will be marching at the demonstration which is being organised in Brussels on the 15th of March. We invite all of our colleagues to join us.

U4U calls all European staff members to join us at 12h30, Place Charles ROGIER, in front of n° 16

U4U calls on all of our colleagues to show us your support, wherever you are in Europe or the world: email us a photo showing what you are doing to support the movement.

 

A Call for Solidarity with our Youth:

March for the Future on Friday 15 March 2019

The schoolchildren of Belgium, united under the name “Youth for Climate”, have made international headlines with their weekly demonstrations demanding bold political action to fight climate change.

Together with youth groups in over 50 countries, they have announced a March for the Future on Friday 15 March. In Brussels, they will assemble at the North Station at 10.30hrs and march through the city center to the South Station.

The citizen movement Rise for Climate in collaboration with Youth for Climate will organize a rally at the end of the march, on the Esplanade de l’Europe from 12 noon to 16.00. Rise for Climate Belgium is a grassroots, nonpartisan citizen movement that has organized monthly demonstrations in front of the European Parliament from September to November 2018, as well as the march on 27 January which attracted over 70.000 people).

Rise for Climate is advocating for strong climate policy measures to be taken at European level. We have had fruitful meetings and correspondence with high-level officials of the European Commission, Parliament, Council, and Committee of the Regions. We have received confirmation from the office of Donald Tusk that he has agreed to put climate change on the agenda of the upcoming European Council summit on 21-22 March. The rally on 15 March will therefore send a timely message to EU heads of state and government that their constituents expect firm commitments and not empty promises to result from this summit. From our discussions with MEPs and EU officials we have learned that the extraordinary mobilization of citizens and students in Belgium has had a powerful impact throughout the institutions. Far from disapproving of it, they welcome this widely publicized demonstration of “people power” as it provides them the mandate they need to defend bold policy measures against the lobbyists and defenders of the status quo who are pulling all the stops to block them.
