2019 Annual political dialogue – Platform for coal regions in transition

Annual Political Dialogue Platform for Coal Regions in Transition

The second edition of the annual political dialogue of the Platform for coal regions in transition will take place on 25-26 November in Görlitz, Germany, and will be organised by the European Commission in close cooperation with the two German host regions of Brandenburg and Saxony.

On the first day, high-level speakers will reflect on the progress achieved in the past year and look at the future of the initiative, in a new European context with an ever-increasing focus on ‘just transition’.  Discussions will focus on the respective role of the EU and regions in supporting and implementing a ‘just transition’ and on the specific issues of attracting investments to coal regions and ensuring cross-border cooperation.

On the second day, site visits will be organised for participants to see concrete transition projects in Lausitz.

The event is by invitation only.
