Statement of President Dassis on the Nantes Declaration of climate actors

The EESC advocates for civil society and citizens at global, national and subnational levels to be fully involved in the development, review and, above all, implementation of the Paris Agreement. With the general framework agreed at the COP21 in Paris, it is now also the role of non-state actors, including civil society, to work together to implement it. The contribution of non-state actors is an absolute must if the world community is serious enough about the commitments made in Paris last year.


This week in Nantes, France, almost 3,000 representatives of local authorities, associations, trade unions, scientific organisations and citizens, participated in the Climate Chance Summit. This summit served to demonstrate the wide spectrum of climate action worldwide. It culminated with an adoption of a declaration of climate actors « Strengthening concrete action to bridge the gap between current commitments and the objectives of the Paris Agreement”.
