European Low-Carbon Vision and Action Plan

Paper type: European paper

How do we bring different groups together in constructive dialogue on our low-carbon future? The R&Dialogue project consortium believes that the objectives of the European Commission’s 2050 Roadmap would be much easier to achieve if citizens, civil society and scientists not only share the overall ambition of emissions reduction, but also agree with, and contribute to, the possible solutions. When citizens feel part of the processes that give us low-carbon policies and solutions, we will be closer to achieving a low carbon society. This is why we believe we need to co-create a vision of a low-carbon society.
