The xunta de Galicia has developed the Galician Strategy for Climate Change and Energy 2050 (EGCCE). This road map in terms of climate and energy aims to achieve global climate neutrality in Galicia before 2050 and to achieve this, it is committed to the implementation of renewable energies, the use of CO2 absorption from the Galician mountains and the improvement of energy efficiency in all sectors. In addition to mitigating emissions, the EGCCE foresees three other areas of action: adaptation to the effects of climate change, public awareness and research and innovation.

The Xunta de Galicia, very committed to sustainability, aims to raise public awareness of environmental issues. Climathon Galicia is a good example of the actions that Galicia carries out to promote citizen participation in the fight against Climate Change.
