The European Union is drafting a regulation for the classification of sustainable finance products, the so-called Taxonomy. This sounds boring and bureaucratic, but it is actually one of the most significant projects of recent years and an important building block of the Green New Deal.
Accordingly, the natural gas and nuclear lobbies, as well as various European countries, are trying hard to have their dirty technologies classified as sustainable. Against these forces, it is important to create public pressure to counter the possible inclusion of both fossil gas and nuclear power in the taxonomy !
As a first step, we organise two webinars on the current state of the EU-Taxonomy and the role of the climate justice movement in this context: EU Taxonomy – Green Gas and Nuclear are dirty lies!
The webinars will be held one time in German and one time in English:
German: Monday, May 24, 7 pm CEST (Julian Bothe / . ausgestrahlt)
English: Monday, May 31, 7 pm CEST (Julian Bothe /. ausgestrahlt and Frida Kieninger / Food and Water Action Europe)

We are looking forward to meet you and to kick the gas and nuclear lobby in the ass!
