Czechia launches leading climate campaign

The Czech EU Presidency has recently organised several events in the Czech Republic and abroad to promote climate protection, the environment and biodiversity around the world as part of the leadership’s #Czechia4Climate campaign. The campaign was launched by Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jan Lipavský and Minister for the Environment Anna Hubáčková.

“Participating in climate diplomacy in the world can be an opportunity to contribute to modernising our country and strengthening its competitiveness,” said Foreign Minister Lipavský.

Green diplomacy is among the key priorities of the Czech presidency in the Council of the EU. Prague hopes to build a bridge between climate security and development and humanitarian cooperation, especially in terms of decreasing the risk of catastrophes. 

“The example of connecting two of our EU presidency priorities, green diplomacy and cooperation with the Indo-Pacific, is the international conference dedicated to the protection of natural wildlife. We are organising this event in mid-September in Jakarta. It is a concrete contribution to EU cooperation in the region,” added Minister Lipavský.

By bringing such initiatives to the forefront, Czechia seeks to take leadership in tackling the global climate crisis.

“The current European energy crisis, escalated by Russia’s aggression in Ukraine, is clearly linked to the climate crisis,” added Environment Minister Hubáčková. “And there exists only one answer to both: the quickest and most consistent end to fossil fuel use. The key is to not allow the cost of decreasing fossil fuel dependency on low-income groups, we must help them the most during this time. For this reason, negotiating a social climate fund is one of the most important points of the Czech EU presidency, in which we will be able to help people with both investments and compensations.”
