Fridays for future is a youth led movement, that fights the climate crisis and demands urgent action to protect our future. In Summer 2019 a group of activists decided to launch an European citizens' initiative to address the issue of lacking political action on European level. Our goals are to force the new commission to be more ambitious on their climate crisis goals. We demand nett-0 by 2035 and also ask for a border carbon adjustment and free trade agreements to be only signed with countries that follow the Paris agreement, to protect the transforming European economy. To further raise awareness we also ask the European Commission to provide free training material about the causes, the effects of and solutions for the climate crisis in all member states' languages. An European Citizens' Initiative is a special petition tool that allows to directly address the European Commission and the European Parliament. For this we need to collect 1 million signatures in EU member states. More information can be found at
