An opportunity to bring together the climate community in its diversity and to mobilise local actors at a key moment for the climate agenda

The year 2022 is an important year for the implementation of the European Green Deal, particularly with regard to its implementation et the local level and the public policies to be deployed to achieve the objective of -55% of CO2 emissions by 2030 (Fit for 55). The French Presidency of the Council of the European Union (FPEU) is a key moment to make progress on this important climate agenda.

Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Alok Sharma, President of the COP26 and Yasmine Fouad, Egyptian Minister of Environment, Ministerial Coordinator and Special Envoy to COP27 will be present in Nantes, as well as Barbara Pompili, Minister for Ecological Transition, and other European ministers and commissioners. On 7th and 8th March, in Nantes, during two days of meetings and exchanges on climate issues, the Climate Chance Summit Europe #SCCE2022 will will bring together a large number of experts, well-known climate personalities and provide an opportunity for 2,000 local actors, local and regional authorities, businesses, researchers and citizens, to dialogue with high-level representatives of the Member States of the European Union and the European Commission, who have come to attend the European Climate Conference of the FPEU, and to formulate opinions and proposals.

The meeting will equally balance both mitigation and adaptation issues at the European level, with a dedicated day for each.

The Summit will also discuss Europe’s international action on climate change, particularly in terms of Europe’s cooperation with Africa.

A unique opportunity to bring to light priorities and common proposals from local actors to strengthen the European Green Deal

The Climate Chance Summit Europe 2022 will be an opportunity to bring to light and make public the proposals of local actors (local authorities, businesses, NGOs) on the implementation of local climate action, in line with the new European framework and national public policies.

During the high-level plenary sessions, the proposals will be presented and defended in front of European and international bodies. These proposals, discussed in some thirty workshops led by various networks, will then be assembled and sent to all European leaders and the 27 Member States.

2 days of interactive workshops and roundtables bringing together high-level experts and field actors

The Summit will be an opportunity to discover the best practices in climate action of European actors. The initiatives and innovations will be collected via a call for contributions launched at European level in advance of the event and widely relayed to all European non-state actor networks.

The event will be based on the analyses of the Climate Chance Observatory. The Summit will be an opportunity to highlight the main trends of the Global Synthesis Report on local climate action 2022, including the main cooperation initiatives of cities and regions for climate change mitigation and adaptation.

The Summit will include several moments and areas of animation: stands, interactive presentations, pitch corners, networking zones, etc.
