Our first common action as European Grandparents for Climate took place on May 31. We blew whistles at noon in front of national parliaments and in other public places as a wake-up call for the European Elections.

The Austrian Grandparents for Future gave symbolic encouragement to the 183 Members of Parliament to handle the hot stuff of climate protection by presenting each of them with a self-crocheted pot holder.

Before handing them over to the MPs  the colourful pot holders were clipped to a long string and presented in front of the Parliament for the Press and anyone else to see.

In the ensuing meetings with various MPs climate protection and its importance in the upcoming elections were discussed.
