Overcoming the governance traps in climate politics requires action by diverse societal groups. This is acknowledged by the European Climate Pact which has established an ambassadors’ model for accelerating the transformation towards climate-neutrality. Climate Pact Ambassadors are volunteers who can be driven by different motivations.
In our new study titled "For Young and Future Generations? Insights from the Web Profiles of European Climate Pact Ambassadors" and published in the European Journal of Risk Regulation, we analyse the analyses the publicly available web profiles of the European Climate Pact Ambassadors. We show that only very few Climate Pact Ambassadors refer to the interests of the current young and future generations as the motivation for their engagement, including Climate Pact Ambassadors who self-identify as members of the current young generation. However, young Climate Pact Ambassadors as well as those who indicate being active in the education sector identify the current young generation as the main targets of their activities.
