European Climate Pact

Uniting a Support System to Build a More Sustainable Europe

Client: European Commission, DG Clima
Partner: ICF


The Climate Pact supports the core strategic initiative of the European Union’s Green Deal through an extensive, Europe-wide stakeholder campaign. It is aimed at all citizens and stakeholders of the 27 Member States, using a variety of methods and formats and encouraging stakeholders to participate in a broad discussion on the goals of the Green Deal and make a personal contribution through a “Climate Pledge”. The main target groups of the campaign are citizens, especially those who are more difficult to win over to the goals of the Green Deal, and young people, as well as relevant organizations, from companies, municipalities, and regions to schools, universities, associations, foundations, and youth organizations. The methodological approaches are strongly participatory and developed in a co-creative manner in close collaboration with the stakeholders involved.
