Connecting stakeholders

Stakeholders from coal regions across the EU meet regularly to discuss projects and best practices in their just transition journey.


The Initiative for coal regions in transition facilitates collective dialogue among regions and the wider stakeholder community, promoting good practices and cooperation, and organises working groups and high-level political events.

The Initiative's Secretariat organizes regular virtual meetings to offer updates to stakeholders, present the latest developments, announce programmes and gather feedback from coal regions from the EU and beyond on their journey towards a just transition.

Just Transition Platform Conference - October 2022

The conference, organised by DG ENER and DG REGIO, brought together European decision-makers and representatives from coal, peat, lignite and oil shale regions (“coal+ regions”) as well as carbon-intensive regions to discuss making use of European tools to facilitate just transitions. European Commissioners and leaders from coal+ regions will address, among other things, implementation of just transition and the Just Transition Fund, current energy price spikes, and future-proof economies.
