Brussels and the Île-de-France join forces to tackle climate change
On 30 November 2022, the Brussels-Capital Region and the Île-de-France Region signed a declaration of intent to jointly tackle the challenge of climate change.
A delegation of the Île-de-France Region, led by its President Valérie Pécresse, visited Brussels on 30 November 2022. The meeting between the Brussels-Capital Region (BCR) and the Île-de-France Region focused on the role of regions in adapting to climate change and mobilising resources, more specifically at the European level.
Brussels and the Île-de-France have signed a declaration of intent on climate change
The Brussels-Capital Region and the Île-de-France Region signed a cooperation agreement twenty years ago, which was revised and adapted to the new joint challenges that these regions face in 2021.
This time, the two regions naturally decided to specifically join forces to adapt to climate change and mobilise resources at the regional level. To this end, they signed a declaration of intent on the occasion of the meeting between Valérie Pécresse, President of the Île-de-France Region, Sven Gatz, Minister of the Government of the Brussels-Capital Region responsible for Finance and Budget, and Pascal Smet, Brussels State Secretary responsible for European and International Relations.
