Europe must urgently support sustainable regional growth, innovation and jobs. This means creating a culture of investment and modernisation in skills, energy and transport systems, as they are the core foundations of a healthy and prosperous economy. Many key industries are undergoing dramatic transformation which has implications for regional, social and economic cohesion. Carbon-intensive regions and workers require specific support measures to aid them in their modernisation whilst other regions require assistance in generating jobs and new clean industries.
We explore the impact of change in the steel and coal mining sectors and how to connect the Just Transition framework with regional Sustainable Energy to Action Plans, organised by the Covenant of Mayors, and direct finance from the EU Emissions Trading Systems (EU ETS).
We would like to welcome you to attend our panel discussion and Q&A with stakeholders on Wednesday, 26 November 2014, in Strasbourg from 14.00-16.00.
