The article examines from a European Union (EU) perspective whether the instructional structure of modernity that is part of the climate change problem also be part of the solution. It deals with three different solution strategies such as ecological modernization, green governmentality and civic environmentalism. Compared to many countries, the level of problem awareness in the EU is rather high although public opinion polls reveal significant differences among individual member states. Green parties and environmental movements have contributed to the current prominence of environmental politics in the EU.
