The first meeting of the citizens' climate council, announced during the Prime Minister's State of the Nation speech last autumn, will take place this weekend.

Over 1,100 people volunteered to participate in the council, with 100 retained. Over the course of the next six months the citizens' council will seek to answer questions on Luxembourg's climate policy and its future proposals.

The launch of the "Klima Biergerrot" will take place at 2pm on Saturday and can be followed live online. The council will then present a report to parliament for a later debate.
