How can people thrive, in a society that supports them within the limits of the planet? How do we shift from an extractive economy to a regenerative economy? Join our online event to learn and discuss on these and many other questions on 3rd November.

About the Event:

Join us exploring the transition to an economy of the future. We will bring together speakers from the EU and the Western Balkans on the topic with their experiences and solutions to promote the importance of this transition all over Europe.

We have to rethink production and consumption from the perspective of a social circular economy. Only if the transformation is planned and executed in a just and equitable way, it will find the timely and necessary support among the population. With this project we are researching the different dimensions of Just Transition and what are the politics and policies we should develop to make the change in our economic realities.


This seminar is part of the Green European Foundation’s Just Transition transnational project. The project looks into the question of transforming from an extractive to a regenerative economy in a just and equitable way to find the necessary support among the population. It seeks to show that the green family, including GEF in its specific role, is a leading actor in the development of future-proof politics and policies, developed in a sensitive way that keeps in mind local specificities.
