The Paris Agreement opened a new chapter in global action to fight climate change and accelerate the transition to a low-carbon, sustainable future. This year, countries are for the first time taking stock of their collective and individual efforts towards the Paris goals as part of the 'Talanoa Dialogue' process agreed at the UN climate conference in 2015 (COP21).
As part of the EU contribution to the Talanoa Dialogue, the European Commission will organise an 'EU for Talanoa' conference on 13 June 2018 in Brussels.
The event will stimulate discussions related to the implementation of the Paris Agreement, show how the EU is delivering on its climate goals and support the involvement of all public and private actors in the fight against climate change. The programme will feature high-level keynotes and panel discussions as well as a "pitching session" on innovative ideas for meeting climate action goals.
