Bringing Europe's Leaders Together

Club of Three

Our mission

The Club of Three is a Franco-German-British leadership initiative which aims to:

  • Encourage the exchange of new ideas at the highest level on how to tackle the greatest threats and challenges of our time
  • Enhance dialogue between senior figures from business, politics, the media and academia in France, Germany and the UK
  • Strengthen the relationships between “the Three” and with other European and international partners outside of official communication channels
  • Generate strategic thinking on Europe’s future following the British referendum decision for the UK to leave the European Union

2021 Plenary Meeting of the Club of Three


The Plenary meeting, which took place on 15 October in London, focused on the topics of climate change and the energy transition ahead of the UN COP26 summit hosted by the UK in Glasgow.

It was divided into three main themes: international climate actions in an age of great power competition; the realistic path to achieving Europe’s low carbon objectives; and what can – and should – be expected from industry.
