Climate action and clean energy transition are closely linked with social justice. Communities depending on coal investments understand best the need for a just transition from coal to the low carbon economy. CAN Europe believes that Just Transition should be a priority of governments to support local communities in building decentralised, community-based renewable energy systems and to secure a just transition for people in coal dependent regions.
In CAN Europe’s side event “Just transition at the grassroots: preparing for the coal phase out”, we will discuss the progress on just transition in 2019.
Join our side event to hear how just transition can be integrated in the global clean energy transition. Experts will be sharing lessons learnt from ambitious regions to inspire others.
The event will be co- hosted by CAN Europe, CEE Bankwatch Network and Ecoaction and take place on Monday 2 December, 13:15 - 14:45 in Room 5.
