The European Chamber addresses on Wednesday issues related to climate change during a meeting attended by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, invited by the President of the European Commission (EC), Ursula von der Leyen.
During the encounter is planned the approval of the first regulatory law on the issue for the community block, a fundamental step towards the goal of achieving climate neutrality by 2050.
The approximate amount for the achievement of these plans is around 260 million euros per year, according to calculations made by the EC and should be discussed during this meeting of the European Parliament (EP).
Among the postulates of such legislation is the known Green Deal, which establishes guidelines to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent by 2030.
Its presence in the EP meeting will provide another vision on the issue and the necessary measures to face the challenges arising from climate deterioration, press media stand out. On February 7, Thunberg along with 35,000 people grouped in the youth organization Saminuorra participated in a protest in her country in which she denounced the effects of climate change on the Sami people.
Such population group is made up of about 80,000 people and its presence is known in Sweden, Norway, Finland and northern Russia.
The activist assured that indigenous people around the world are those who first perceive the consequences of climate change and those who suffer the most.
Since 2018, the young woman and the ‘Friday for the Future’ movement have been leading strikes and demonstrations throughout the world and their protests are frequent in front of the Swedish Parliament, headquartered in Stockholm.
