Dear readers,

The last days of 2015 are fast approaching, and we’re all looking forward to a well deserved Christmas break with our loved ones.

It has been a busy year for the Intergroup on "Climate Change, Biodiversity, and Sustainable Development as 27 meetings have been organised in the European Parliament, covering diverse subjects and bringing together MEPs, European Commission officials, business representatives, NGOs, the scientific community, and other stakeholders engaging in dialogue. You can find out more about the events that took place in 2015 on our website.

More events are already in the pipeline for 2016, especially with the newly released Circular Economy Package as well as the outcomes of UNFCCC COP21 that took place in Paris. We look forward to these new challenges, and we will continue to keep you updated on all upcoming activities in the new year! 

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
