Multi-level Dialogue on Just Transition
The Multi-level Dialogue on Just Transition is a recurring event that is hosted by the European Committee of the Regions and organised in cooperation with the European Commission. The aim of the Dialogue is to promote exchange between the different levels of governance in the process of just transition throughout Europe. Participants to these Dialogues can for example come from civil society, local and regional authorities (such as city council members, mayors, governors, regional parliament members, …), national level government, European Commission, European Parliament and Council. The European Union has to make the most out of the Just Transition Fund, and the participation of cities and regions is of key importance to its success.
The plans of the European Union to cut greenhouse gas emissions and achieve climate neutrality require a socio-economic transformation, especially in regions relying heavily on fossil fuels and carbon-intensive industries. In this context, the local and regional representatives and guests from all parts of Europe will share their experiences and recommendations, to help in addressing current challenges and define the future shape of the policy.
