The European Union and its Member States will put on a simultaneous "climate" event in seven major cities throughout Australia.

These events are part of the "European Climate Diplomacy Day" taking place worldwide on the 17th of June 2015 to promote informed debate about climate change in the lead up to this year's decisive meeting at Paris in December.
