ESPON virtual Roundtable: Regions and structural change in the light of just transition and decarbonisation strategies
Fri June 11 2021, from 9:20 am to 1:00 pm
Regions in transition to a post-carbon Europe are facing an unprecedented structural change, compounded by the damage inflicted by the COVID-19 pandemic and population shrinkage. With a special focus on Polish coal regions and comparison with other transitioning regions in Europe, the event will revolve around the Just Transition Plans, being the common denominator for various policy and empirical realities.
