Event Description: Which are the European Regions at risk of suffering from socio-economic impacts in light of the (just) energy transition? Coal+ regions across Europe and beyond have been for decades the drivers of their countries’ economies, though at times still falling behind their neighbours. With the clear decision of the European Commission to decarbonise economies highly dependent on fossil fuels, these regions are at risk of lagging (if not already) greatly behind their national economies. Since a key principle of the Just Transition is to leave no one behind, change-makers are developing solutions and innovative business models to diversify their economies in order to alleviate the negative effects of such rapid change. This webinar brings together practitioners’ and researchers’ voices from several European coal+ regions to identify the challenges and potential pathways toward economic diversification and resilience.
This is the third event of our CINTRAN webinar series, a capacity-building programme aimed at practitioners and everyone interested in learning more about the just energy transition in coal+ regions across Europe. Within this interactive webinar, you will get an overview of the 15 European regions at socio-economic risk, their challenges, and the key areas where they should focus to prepare for a successful just transition. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to interact with practitioners from different regions and their efforts to alleviate the consequences of a rapid decarbonisation.
