Climate Alliance mourns former board member and friend Camille Gira

Camille Gira, Luxembourg State Secretary for Sustainable Development and Environment, passed away Wednesday while doing what he had always done best – fighting for the environment and for a better world. The former mayor of Beckerich served on Climate Alliance’s Board of Directors from 2004 until 2014 and was a steadfast supporter of Climate Alliance over the last decade and a half. Even after giving up his official post as a member of the board, Camille continued to promote Climate Alliance principles. He was an ardent supporter of the Covenant of Mayors and an outspoken champion of climate action here in Europe. At the same time, he also understood the importance of fighting for climate justice and supporting indigenous rights. For Climate Alliance, Camille Gira was both an inspirational figure and a familiar face. His dedication, vision and passion were extraordinary, as were his kindness and humanity. He will be sorely missed.
