Why this community and why now?
Europeans want to live in and pass on to future generations a cleaner environment, where energy is more affordable, transport is smarter and jobs are plenty! The European Green Deal is the EU’s most ambitious plan so far to make this a reality, as it transforms the EU into the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. The Real Deal project aims at bringing Europeans closer to the decision making processes at the heart of the green and just transition, to make sure their voices are heard.
The Real Deal is how we make our own future. Get involved.
People like you are taking action to build a greener and more just future. A future in which Europeans are placed at the heart of the decision-making process, making a REAL DEAL for both people and the planet. By joining our community, you will have the opportunity to make a difference.
