5) Improves our environment

10 November 2015

The EU leads on tackling climate change and caring for our environment.

Environmental issues don’t stop at borders and only by working together can we protect our environment. North East beaches and air quality have improved because of Europe. Environmental protection can also bring jobs to the region through new technology such as carbon capture and storage.

Did you know? Our beaches have been dramatically cleaned up thanks to Europe.

Do you think the North East needs its own voice in the EU exit negotiations?
