By: J.S., STA

The COP26 climate conference is a key step for the future of our planet and younger generations, Environment Minister Andrej Vizjak said at a press conference in Glasgow, speaking alongside European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans.

“It’s time we act responsibly and move up from good intentions to concrete actions,” Vizjak said. Slovenia represents the EU and is in charge of coordinating the member states’ views as it holds the EU presidency. Timmermans said negotiators and the participating countries still had a lot to do, noting the EU’s stance that ambitious targets only count if backed by concrete measures.
