This is the last straight line to the 150 citizens of the ‘Convention’ for the climate, born after the Great national debate that was itself responding to the crisis of the yellow Vests.
Nine months, seven weekends, six-session and a health crisis later, the members of the first ‘Convention’ to make their copy, the conclusions that should allow them to fulfill their mandate : “to develop a set of measures to achieve a 40% reduction in our CO2 emissions at the horizon 2030, in a spirit of social justice.”
The members vote until Sunday for or against the proposals on which these ordinary people have actually worked tirelessly, surrounded by three guarantors, a corporate governance committee, invited experts acting in a support and a group of animators.
The first decisions
As soon as this Friday, the first targets were adopted, including a strong risk of making a lot of noise : limiting speed to 110 km/h on the highway. 60 % of the members of the convention voted in support, while other measures were found to be less clivantes.
The limitation of the waste by the development of the bulk and of the instructions on the glass, for example, has been approved 95.9 %.
The proposals will link up to Sunday night, knowing that in the end they will be presented ” key in hand “, in the form of a bill, for example, the head of State.

The commitments of the president
But after ? This will be Emmanuel Macron to decide. In April 2019, at the time of his press conference at the end of the Great debate, during which he announced the creation of this convention, the president of the Republic had said :
All, however, is not so rosy, the citizens of the convention does not ignore and would be even decided to create an association that ensures that their proposals do not fall by the wayside. One of them interviewed by Ouest France wonders if the members of the Convention are not working for nothing ” because a measure which would be very important for moving forward could be countered by other lobbies “.
The first elements of an answer may be made on the 29th of June, the date on which Emmanuel Macron will receive these 150 people.
