The initiative "Young Elected Politicians United 4 Climate"
took place during the CoR Plenary Session in Brussels on 3-5 December 2019. On 3 December, young elected politicians have been involved in three main "Participatory Workshops" on:
- Renewable energy and prosumers;
- Energy efficiency and circular economy;
- Low-carbon modes of transport.
The results of the three participatory workshops have led to the drafting of 8 main recommendations on how to accelerate climate action locally. The " Local Climate Action Footprint
" has been handed over to the President of the European Committee of the Regions, Karl-Heinz Lambertz and to the Executive Vice-President responsible for the European Green Deal, Frans Timmermans on the occasion of the debate on the European Green Deal during the 137th CoR Plenary Session.

The selection of YEPs has been based on ensuring the best possible balance of nationality, regional and local representation, political affiliation, and on gender, for which the CoR is strongly committed to reach a balance.
