Joint Open Letter to EU Leaders on the Strategic Agenda 2024-2029

Strategic Agenda letter – Signatories logos

E3G together with civil society organisations, businesses, cities and regions have written to the President of the European Council, President of the European Commission and Heads of State of EU Member States calling on them to prioritise a socially fair and green climate transition in the Strategic Agenda.

As the contours of the EU’s 2024-2029 Strategic Agenda begin to take shape, a coalition of civil society stakeholders, businesses, and organisations representing cities and regions from across Europe is urging European Heads of State and Government to prioritise the transition to a climate-neutral, green, fair, and social Europe.

  1. Maintain the priority of a climate-neutral, green, fair, and social Europe: Accelerate the European Green Deal by setting an ambitious 2040 target, improving climate resilience, and boosting labour rights and social and civil dialogue.
  2. Put public funding and economic governance on the agenda: Establish a long-term EU Fund aimed at achieving a socially just and competitive transformation towards net zero and a circular economy.
  3. Urgently prioritise social and democratic concerns: Strengthen the social dimension, create quality jobs, and tie strong eco-social conditionalities to public funds.
  4. Place clean transition partnerships at the core of the EU’s approach to foreign policy: Strengthen Europe’s geopolitical position, international stability and global decarbonisation efforts through mutually beneficial clean transition partnerships.
