As a Climate Ambassador, I will promote our Green Deal goals locally and regionally working together with national as well as European levels. My aim is to increase dialogue with local authorities and citizens of my home city and region on how to best put our climate and environmental policy commitments into practice. Tampere has already taken many important steps towards circular economy and carbon neutrality, but more can be done. Good local practices can be linked better to European goals.

The role of Climate Ambassador is complementary to my current Ph.D. project in Sustainable Chemistry. My knowledge will be used to develop efficient and realistic ideas and actions for the climate. Fulfilling my mission will therefore rely on two main aspects, scientific dissemination and concrete actions for the climate. I will focus on the development of local and regional solutions. My main motivations are to put my knowledge and expertise to use in practical actions and to represent BiOrbic.

Since 2019 I conduct investigations into the negative consequence of climate anxiety in young adults. These consequences have an impact on the mental health of individuals that perceived themselves and their community as unable to purpose effective behavior to mitigate climate change. The scientific literature on this issue suggested that the perception of self and community efficacy could lead to adopting pro-environmental behavior. I would study this phenomenon and spread information about it.

I am a university student from Belgium who has always been interested in protecting our planet. I have loved nature from a young age, despite living in the city where green areas as scarce. I have committed to certain actions on a personal level such as vegetarianism and being more mindful of my carbon footprint in general. I hope to be able to communicate with my community in order to raise awareness about climate change.

I am a strong-willed advocate for the environment, a planet and people person. As European Climate Pact Ambassador, my challenge is to make people understand that, together, we can make a difference and protect our future. Raising awareness of climate change, impacts and solutions, through school workshops, conferences and gatherings with sustainability-focused companies, will be one of my top priorities.

Soy voluntario ambiental con el claro convencimiento de que la mejor acción es el ejemplo. 
Vivo en Andalucía, una de las zonas de la UE donde mayor es el impacto del Cambio Climático. 
Lograr mantener los equilibrios naturales y conseguir que el progreso de las personas sea compatible con la biodiversidad es nuestro gran reto colectivo de los próximos años.
Para ello debemos sustentar nuestras acciones en la conciencia y en hábitos de compra y consumo responsables con todos.

I am an environmental volunteer with the clear conviction that the best action is by example.
I live in Andalusia, one of the areas of the EU where the impact of Climate Change is greatest.
Maintaining natural balances and ensuring that people's progress is compatible with biodiversity is our great collective challenge for the coming years.
To do this, we must support our actions in awareness and in responsible purchasing and consumption habits with everyone.

As a Climate Pact Ambassador, I will work everyday to advance the goal of a sustainable future. My work will focus on increasing public education regarding the climate transition through analysis, outreach and engagement. Through my organization (Global Challenge) I will continuously advocate for the inclusion of the broad public on these matters, in order to ensure a just climate transition. My aim is to continue to bridge the gap between research and action.

As a person that grew up with a comfort of a modern life’s pleasures, it took it’s time until I’ll make myself aware at what cost it is coming. Indeed, it made me first sad and sorrow. Thinking the ways to overcome them brought me to world where science on hands with ecology and universe presents us a smart way of existence. The world where we one step forward in understanding our planet better and cooperating with it smarter.

As an Ambassador, my mission will be to disseminate the impacts of climate change to communities, raising awareness and involving them in the solutions they can adopt and how they can adapt. During the last years as an environmental engineer, researcher, and professor, I have always focused on climate change issues, especially related to water resources. My goal will be to involve young people from universities, consultants, and farmers, in this mission as EU Climate Pact Ambassador.

I live in Asturias, a privileged place that makes people aware of the need of their care and protection.

We need to know the worst problem we face as humanity, the climate change, and the best solutions we have to deal with it.

That's why I enjoy creating content and researching from a multidisciplinary perspective as an environmental scientist. It's time to act.

In a time where “facts are uncertain, values in dispute, stakes high, and decisions urgent” (Funtowicz and Ravetz, 1993: 744), effective communication and informed policy-making have never been more crucial. My objective as a Climate Pact Ambassador will be to explain the science behind climate change in an accessible way to the student body, both in schools and at university, and to equip them with the tools to better grasp the complexity of current environmental challenges.

In Liepāja city I have worked with environmental and climate issues already for years. Liepāja city has joined the Covenant of Mayors in 2012 and I am acting as the Committee of Regions' Covenant of Mayors Ambassador. The first thing we did to fight climate change was to improve the heat supply system. We are working for the residents to have convenient public transport and safe movement with bicycles. As the Ambassador I would like to reach out more to local inhabitants schools on the topics of environment.
