Debunking the myths of the ecological transition

As the European Parliament elections approach from June 6th to June 9th 2024, the importance of informed voting cannot be overstated.

That's why we've launched the ChooseWiselyEU campaign—to debunk common myths about the ecological transition and provide voters with the facts they need to navigate climate issues.

This campaign is dedicated to presenting climate action and ecological transition information in a politically neutral and factual manner. Our goal is not to influence your vote towards any candidate but to ensure you are well-equipped to distinguish fact from fiction. You'll gain access to reliable information, credible sources, and clear explanations to help you make informed choices in the upcoming elections.

Through our research, we have identified five prevalent myths that deter voters from supporting candidates with ambitious climate policies. Below, each myth is meticulously deconstructed to reveal the truth and provide clarity.

Whether you're looking for a quick overview or an in-depth analysis, ChooseWiselyEU is here to help you discern the truth and make informed choices for a sustainable future.

We must reframe and redefine climate action from something sacrificial to something beneficial.
