Join us for our initial event in 2020 on Energy Democracy to explore the possibilities of shaping the energy sector in North Macedonia and the region

About the Event:

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


The Green European Foundation and Sunrise have in the previous three year period been pioneers on the topic of Energy Democracy in North Macedonia; with this 2020 event we will continue with the elaboration on the European experiences in the energy sector and stimulating positive changes in North Macedonia and the region. In this open Webinar we will discuss energy transformation and set a path to a participatory, inclusive and decentralized green economy through promotion of the Energy Democracy concept. Together we will contribute to the debates and practices on the EU level with experiences and challenges from the Balkans.
