The EU’s directly elected legislative body, the European Parliament, will be debating a regulation and a directive in EUROSIMA’21. Members of the European Parliament will be assigned a party group to represent, and will shape their stances based on the positions of their parties. Discussions will be shaped around a procedure that requires strong interaction with another EU institution: the Council of the European Union. The European Parliament will engage in a discussion about how to design a ‘European Climate Law’ as part of a broader mission of achieving climate neutrality by 2050, namely the European Green Deal. The discussions will revolve around different priorities of those who take part in the climate debate: jobs, growth, and sustainable policy-making. To formulate an efficient, common European response to the climate emergency, participants will try to appeal to various groups' demands with opposite stances on critical issues. Parliament will also discuss the directive on “Adequate minimum wages in the European Union” proposed by the European Commission. The aim is to set out a roadmap to ensure adequate minimum wages within the Union to sustain a resilient and prosperous European community, and ensure the accessibility to such adequate minimum wages by the workers of the Union by full confidence and ease. Therefore, Parliament will be debating upon the ways and means to achieve aforementioned goals of the directive by making amendments when necessary.
