This transnational project will tackle the question of a Just Transition – 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 futureproof politics and policies, developed in a sensitive way that keeps in mind local specificities.
The project partners will work together in conducting research on the Just Transition and drafting a paper on its different dimensions. They will connect with relevant European and national actors to build a network and launch the project with a transnational event in Brussels in spring 2020. In the course of the project, the partners will implement activities in their countries to increase awareness of the importance of a Just Transition all over Europe. Eventually, the partners will compile a book on the subject to be published in 2021.
