Press release

14th July 2022

Member of European Parliament (MEP) Christel Schaldemose from the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) is organising a debate about climate at Political Festival of Europe

Held for the first time from 25 to 28 August 2022 in Mariager, Northern Denmark, Political Festival of Europe is a platform and space where visitors from all over Europe will have the opportunity to help shape European democracy and its future. Here, citizens gather with politicians and decision-makers from across the continent for exciting debates and talks, while also experiencing the rich and diverse cultures of Europe.

MEP Christel Schaldemose from Denmark is among the many politicians, organisations and companies that have taken up the initiative of organising their own event at Political Festival of Europe.

It almost goes without saying that climate change is the biggest challenge the planet faces in the 21st century. Already today, extreme weather, drought and food insecurity are on the rise in many parts of the world. In order to mitigate the climate change, we must act now. In this debate, we will be discussing how the EU can step up as the global frontrunner on climate action as well as the potential impact of the upcoming Fitfor55 package from a social democratic point of view. I am looking very much forward to the event,

Climate being one of the seven main themes of Political Festival of Europe and on the top agenda of many European institutions and countries, CEO for Political Festival of Europe Jan Bertelsen welcomes the climate debate by Christel Schaldemose.

We are now in a crucial time in history as solutions taken within climate, energy and sustainability are solutions that will shape the general well-being and path of the future. We hope that the debates and discussions around climate at the Festival can have an impact on the way citizens, politicians and decision-makers move forward,

Political Festival of Europe welcomes the proactiveness of the many MEPs from S&D in helping shape the agenda of the Festival.

Political Festival of Europe is an annual democracy festival that serves as a platform for democratic dialogue about the most pressing issues on the European agenda. On the side of political events, the Festival is also a place of festivities that celebrates the rich and diverse culture and heritage of Europe.

Medlem af Europa-Parlamentet MEP Christel Schaldemose fra Gruppen for Det Progressive Forbund af Socialdemokrater i Europa-Parlamentet (S&D) arrangerer en debat om klima pĂĄ Political Festival of Europe

Political Festival of Europe – ”Det Europæiske Folkemøde” – afholdes for første gang den 25.-28. august 2022 i Mariager. Folkemødet er det sted, hvor de mange besøgende fra hele Europa får lejlighed til at forme Europæisk demokrati og dets fremtid. Til august samles borgere sammen med politikere og beslutningstagere fra hele kontinentet til spændende debatter og samtaler. Udover de politiske events, kan besøgende også opleve de rige og mangfoldige kulturer af Europa.

MEP Christel Schaldemose fra Danmark er blandt de mange politikere, organisationer og virksomheder, der har taget initiativ til at arrangere deres eget arrangement pĂĄ Political Festival of Europe.

Det siger næsten sig selv, at klimaforandringerne er den største udfordring, som planeten står over for i det 21. århundrede. Allerede i dag er ekstremt vejr, tørke og fødevareusikkerhed en realitet i mange dele af verden. For at afbøde klimaændringerne skal vi handle nu. I denne debat vil vi ud fra et socialdemokratisk perspektiv diskutere, hvordan EU kan blive den globale frontløber, når det kommer til klimahandling, samt de potentielle effekter af den kommende Fitfor55-pakke. Jeg glæder mig meget til arrangementet,

siger Christel Schaldemose. Tweet

Klima er et af de syv hovedtemaer af Political Festival of Europe, og klima er også på den øverste dagsorden i mange europæiske institutioner og lande. Jan Bertelsen, CEO for Political Festival of Europe, er derfor glad for at MEP ​​Christel Schaldemose arrangerer en debat indenfor netop klima.

Vi befinder os nu i en afgørende tid, da løsninger inden for klima, energi og bæredygtighed er de løsninger, der vil forme fremtiden og vores velvære. Vi håber, at debatterne og diskussionerne omkring klima på Festivalen kan få betydning for, hvordan borgere, politikere og beslutningstagere kommer videre,

Political Festival of Europe velkommer den proaktive indsats fra de mange MEPer fra S&D, som er med at forme festivalens dagsorden.

Political Festival of Europe/Det Europæiske Folkemøde er en årlig festival, der fejrer demokratiet og er platform for den demokratiske samtale.
