The Future Is Now: A Call to Action

2024-2029 is the legislative term of the future, and the future is now. The energy transition and climate change challenges are now. The next five years are pivotal in turning these challenges into opportunities. The new representatives of the European Parliament and the European Commission have a unique opportunity to make these years a historic turning point in Europe’s global leadership.

With just two weeks until the EU Elections, European citizens have a chance to elect representatives who will rise to this challenge and drive the necessary changes.
