Our second event of the year on Energy Democracy is coming up! Explore with us the possibilities of shaping the energy sector in North Macedonian region!

About the Event

With this session, we aim to tackle the need for a more democratic and inclusive society. To do so, we will examine the state of democracy in the EU and candidate countries with the economic alternatives proposals that take into account the climate change emergency.


The North Macedonian region and its surroundings currently suffer an energy crisis, as the country heavily relies on coal and other fossil fuels. During this event, we will elaborate on the European experiences in the energy sector and stimulate positive change in North Macedonia and the region.

GEF and Sunrise are pioneers on the topic of Energy Democracy in North Macedonia and will continue raising awareness and discussing energy transformation towards a participatory, inclusive and decentralized green economy. Together we will contribute to the debates and practices on the EU level with experiences and challenges from the Balkans.
