IdeaLab: Our Future After Coal

24-26 November from 10:00 to 16:00 CET

Ideation of experiments for coal regions – online sandpit workshop & funding competition

The IdeaLab is a highly interactive 3-day online workshop with ideation of experiments for coal regions and a funding competition for grants.  The event is organized as part of the CEE Climate Community Lab.
During this event, participants will form international teams and collaborate with the help of experienced facilitators and mentors to co-develop projects that:
  • Build positive attitudes towards the decarbonisation process in coal regions,
  • Help coal region residents define a new identity that meets to the challenges of a changing reality,
  • Grow collaborative local leadership and give new, positive meaning to the term “post-coal regions”.

The winning team’s project will be rewarded with a grant of 30 thousand euros for the implementation of the concept. Please feel encouraged to join the workshop with an open mind in order to use the synergy of your and the other participants’ experiences to develop entirely new, multinational ideas and turn them into pitching presentations and grant applications.

Initiated by EIT Climate-KIC in 2020, the CEE Climate Community Lab was established with the aim of bringing together individuals and organizations with an interest in climate action in Central and Eastern Europe. The Lab’s mission is to support local communities and individuals who are actively combating climate change. The Lab has also become an incubator for action and provides competitive opportunities for financial and mentoring support.

This year, together with a team of partner organizations – 4CF, the University of Warsaw and Impact Hub – EIT Climate-KIC is focusing on ideas to support the transformation of carbon regions towards a sustainable future.
