2. A EUROPEAN
GREEN NEW DEAL
Next week, Labour's NEC will be sitting down to decide what to include in the manifesto for the upcoming European Elections. In consultation with Labour members and supporters, we have come up with a series of issues that we believe Labour should commit to in the EU Elections Manifesto.

2. A EUROPEAN GREEN NEW DEAL
Plastic floating in the ocean won't recognise international water territories, and harmful fumes in the air won't respect borders. Cutting ourselves off from our neighbours in Europe won't shelter us from the impacts of climate change. Our world is getting warmer, and the seas will rise on us if we leave or if we stay.
The only way to truly tackle the danger posed by climate change is international cooperation. Working together with governments across the European Union to fundamentally reshape the European economy in a way that ensures the safety of the future of our planet.
The most effective way to do this is in the European Parliament, working within the democratic institutions of the EU to mandate governments to do better.
Labour must commit to a European Green New Deal in its manifesto for the European Elections.
