EEA kicks off public activities in the run-up to COP15

On the occasion of Copenhagen Culture Night, the European Environment Agency (EEA) unveils today a webpage on its activities related to the international climate conference 'COP15'. The new webpage explains the EEA's role in the context of the international climate conference. It allows the public to explore the role of the EEA as leading European body providing authoritative information on the effects of climate change mitigation policies and the impacts of climate change.

During Copenhagen Culture Night, the European Environment Agency will open its doors to the public, with activities mainly dedicated to younger audiences. The visitors are invited to discover 'Circus Climate' in the afternoon and the evening of Friday, 9 October through scientific experiments, a musical theatre, an interactive quiz and informal discussion opportunities with EEA experts on climate change.

The EEA will be cooperating with several partners, including EU institutions and the City of Copenhagen until the end of the international climate conference COP15. The EEA calendar of events offers an overview of all the activities where the Agency is involved.

Background

As host to the United Nations climate conference COP15 in December 2009, Copenhagen will be at the centre of a crucial discussion about the future of our planet. At the moment, the European Union is committed to reduce its emissions by 20 % in 2020, compared to 1990 levels. In the case of a solid international agreement in Copenhagen, however, the EU is ready to take on a more ambitious target of 30 %.

In addition to assisting other EU institutions in their preparations for COP15, the Copenhagen-based European Environment Agency will also inform the general public on key climate issues. Besides regular assessments of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions, the EEA has developed strong expertise on the impacts of and the vulnerability to climate change in Europe.
