Many regions and people across Europe still rely on economies that are incompatible with tackling climate change. These can be coal-producing regions or regions with polluting heavy industries. People and economies engaged in these sectors are therefore highly vulnerable during the transition to a decarbonised future.
Climate, social, economic and democratic justice, and inclusivity, are vital to the success of rapid structural change. EIT Climate-KIC’s Deep Demonstration of Just Transformations will build a movement with the aim of demonstrating that such just transformations are indeed possible. We are working with pioneering and ambitious challenge owners across Europe to achieve democratic and inclusive transformations of whole regions. The movement will put the voices of citizens, workers and young people at the core of regional economic transformation. Our first partners include regional governments in Silesia in Poland, Mondragon in Spain and Emilia Romagna in Italy.
