Climate Convention report
On June 21st, the Convention voted on the 150+ proposals that were elaborated during previous work sessions to deliver a final report that was sent to the Minister Borne for Ecological and Social Transition. The Convention proposes to organise a referendum with two questions: 1) amend the Constitution to introduce the fight against climate change; 2) create the ecocide crime.
Other measures to be enshrined into law or policy include:
- renovation of existing buildings to improve energy efficiency
- Fight against the artificialisation of soils and urban sprawl
- Guarantee a "less animal and more vegetable" diet, by strengthening the law on equal access to food
- reduce greenhouse gases emissions from agriculture
- rethinking of trade policy to include climate considerations
- Display the carbon footprint of products and services
- regulate advertising to curb overconsumption
- reduce the use of private cars, road freight, and reduce maximum speed on highways
- upgrade the car and plane fleets
