Climate Action Network Europe (CAN)

Invitation to join the Fossil Fuel Subsidies Awards ceremony on 22 May

CAN Europe and partners warmly invite you to a medal ceremony that will coronate the most controversial subsidies to fossil fuels by European governments, on Monday 22 May from 9:30 till 10:00 am in Mundo B, conference room.

The European Fossil Fuel Subsidies Awards ceremony will conclude our campaign to raise public awareness about the huge subsidies still going to oil, gas and coal activities, despite government pledges to phase them out in accordance with the Paris climate agreement.

Over the past months, Climate Action Network Europe and partners have been running a contest to identify and expose the most concerning support for fossil fuels by European governments. The winners have been selected through online public vote and will receive a prize at the awards ceremony.

Out of 15 different fossil fuel support schemes, we will reveal the deadliest, sneakiest and dirtiest fossil fuel subsidies in Europe.

Join our awards ceremony and get first hand information on how governments still continue feeding fatal climate change with taxpayers money.

Nominated countries include: Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Turkey and the United Kingdom.
