Join us at our 2021 event on Energy Democracy to explore the possibilities of shaping the energy sector in North Macedonia and the Balkan region.

About the Event:

With this event, we will discuss the need for a more democratic and inclusive society by addressing the state of democracy in the EU and the candidate countries with the economic alternatives and the urgency of climate change.


During the last four years, The Green European Foundation with the support of Sunrise has been leading the discussion on Energy Democracy in North Macedonia. With this 2021 event, we will continue elaborating on the European experiences in the energy sector and stimulating positive change in North Macedonia and the region. During this open Webinar, we will discuss energy transformation and set a path to a participatory, inclusive, and decentralized green economy through the promotion of the Energy Democracy concept. Together we will contribute to the debate and practices on the EU level with experiences and challenges from the Balkans.
