The Coal regions in transition virtual week was part of the Just Transition Platform meeting, from the 26-29 April, where several thematic sessions were organised to address various transition challenges and investment opportunities for coal carbon and fossil fuel-intensive regions. This includes opportunities to invest in the value chains of batteries, a presentation of Pillars 2 and 3 of the Just Transition Mechanism and addressing the demographic challenges of the transition.
As part of the Coal Regions Virtual Week, participants took stock of recent progress as regards coal phase-outs, we heard the voices of EU coal regions and looked at the employment potential of clean energy value-chains in Europe across coal regions.
