EU Commissioner for Climate Action, Connie Hedegaard

EU Commission searches for best climate solutions in Europe

Article By: news

EU Commissioner for Climate Action, Connie Hedegaard, has launched a low-carbon contest calling on creative and innovative minds from across the EU to put their green initiatives to the test. The World You Like Challenge is part of the European Commission's climate action campaign: A world you like.

Commissioner Hedegaard said: "The Challenge is a great opportunity to move beyond mere talking about climate change. By submitting your project, you help us show that building a world we like with a climate we like is both feasible and affordable. And it won't make our lives dull and grey.”

For three months, you can submit your own low-carbon success story for the World You Like Challenge. All projects, big or small, coming from individuals or organisations based in an EU Member State will be considered, provided that their main aim is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This could be an electric bike that serves to transport goods; an innovative production process that drives down greenhouse gas emissions and energy bills; sustainable buildings or heating solutions.

Across Europe there is a plethora of practical examples of a low-carbon way of life that help the climate while also improving our quality of life. The World You Like Challenge aims at providing a platform to showcase these projects and to honour the most creative, practical and effective ones.

More information on the campaign and the contest, including selection criteria, can be found on the campaign website and via Facebook and Twitter: #worldulike
