EUJS launches its Climate Action!

EUJS launches its Climate Action!

As the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP26, is ongoing in Glasgow, the European Union of Jewish students (EUJS) alongside Jewish student unions and leaders from 21 cities in 16 countries across Europe are speaking up and calling for decisive action from the international community.

In doing so, EUJS has coordinated the largest-ever, pan-European Jewish climate action as young Jews from Glasgow to Larissa and from Lisbon to Vilnius took to the streets to present a unified message:

The care and preservation of the environment are intrinsic to our Jewish values and we, as communities in Europe and beyond, must be more engaged and proactive on this issue!

...in speaking to the world leaders who are gathered now in Glasgow at COP26, we urge you: be bold, be ambitious and act now; for our shared future.

EUJS collaborated with our member unions and partners in Barcelona, Brussels, Budapest, Cardiff, Geneva, Glasgow, the Hague, Heidelberg, Larissa, Lisbon, London, Maastricht, Milan, Prague, Sallanches, Savona, Stuttgart, Vienna, Vilnius, Warsaw and Zagreb. And so today we launch our Climate Action - #ForOurSharedFuture - as a call for action from world leaders, as well as Jewish communities to join us in increasing our tangible collective engagement towards combating the ongoing climate crisis.

We would like to thank our member unions and coordinating partners for their involvement in this action. An action which we will look to build upon in the coming weeks as we step up our engagement on climate activism.
