Europe For Nature

For experts

How you can support the EuropeForNature initiative

Do you have expertise in environmental changes, their environmental and/or societal impacts and/or possible solutions? Are you also deeply concerned by the decline of nature in Europe and worldwide, and its impact on current and future generations? Do you agree that it is important that people prioritise nature and sustainability in their decisions? 

If the answer to these questions is yes, then we kindly ask you to support the EuropeForNature initiative by:

01. Publish a story on your social media account(s)

Write your short story in your own language about why Europeans citizens should prioritise nature and sustainability. Base the story on your own expertise, addressing one or several of the following questions:

  • Which environmental changes do you see (nature, soil, water, air) and what is the cause of these changes?
  • Which societal impacts do you see as a result of environmental changes?
  • Which environmental and/or societal impacts are projected for the future if nature and sustainability are (not) taken into account?
  • What successes do you see if nature and sustainability get attention?
  • What research/activities are carried out to better understand the (potential) environmental changes, its impacts and solutions?
  • What will happen if Europeans include nature and sustainability (more) in their decisions and what will happen if they don’t?

Add the hashtag #EuropeForNature so supporters of the initiative can help increase its reach.
