  • Addressing overconsumption in Europe

  • Ecosystem restoration policies and target setting

Context

The Youth Climate and Sustainability Round Tables are a space for regular, structured and meaningful dialogue between youth and EU decision-makers, launched after the adoption of the EESC’s opinion Towards structured youth engagement on climate and sustainability in the EU decision-making process.

The Youth Round Tables take place quarterly in Brussels and are hosted by the EESC in cooperation with the European Youth Forum, Generation Climate Europe and the European Commission.

Each Youth Round Table is on a specific topic and each time a group of around 10 youth representatives meet with the Commissioner responsible for the selected issue. After each event, the youth representatives submit a document of policy demands to the Commissioner involved, which provides a clear written response to the proposals in the following month.
