Date: Tuesday, 20 June at 9.00 AM
Location: near the National Bank of Belgium (Boulevard de Berlaimont, Brussels)
Agenda: Action to urge the National Bank of Belgium to provide more affordable loans for energy renovation
On Tuesday, 20 June at 9.00 AM, Rise for Climate Belgium, Positive Money Europe, Grands-Parents pour le Climat, Grootouders voor het Klimaat, FairFin, and Attac Bruxelles, will join forces to urge the National Bank of Belgium to adopt stronger measures in support of the European Union’s climate goals. Simultaneously, activists and NGOs in other European cities will make the same demands to their national central banks during a coordinated action, emphasising the urgency of energy building renovation.
During this action, lasting approximately 30 minutes, activists in each country will pose a clear question: what are national central banks waiting for to help people renovate their homes?
This initiative is part of a European campaign to encourage the European Central Bank to implement reduced interest rates for loans granted for energy renovation works. This would enable affordable loans for renovation throughout Europe, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions, lower energy bills, and improved resilience to extreme weather conditions.
