France's Macron Aims to Add Climate Change Goals to Constitution via Referendum

On Friday, the European Union leaders agreed on so-called Green Deal, proposed by the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, one year ago. The deal implies the reduction of the greenhouse gases produced within the bloc to between 40% and 55% of their 1990 levels by 2030.

French President Emmanuel Macron has announced a referendum on the ammendments to the country's Constitution, adding the fight against climate change and the necessity to preserve the environment into it, the Associated Press reported on Monday.

According to the report, at a meeting with climate activists (members of a Citizen's Convention on Climate), Macron said that the referendum proposal would need to be approved by both chambers of the French parliament, the Senate and the National Assembly.
