A number of regions around the world have gone through the process, and it would be unwise not to learn from their successes and mistakes. In this text, we visit Greece, Spain, Germany, Finland, and other countries where we believe they successfully face the specific challenges of energy, economic and social transformation.
The Re-set´s publication Fossil Gas: the bridge to climate collapse. Why we must stop the transition from coal to gas and redirect money to real solutions points out the significant contribution of fossil gas to the climate crisis and offers solutions in the form of reduced consumption, renewables, and democratization of the energy sector. Šimon Batík, our colleague from Centre for Transport and Energy is one of the authors of the publication.

The aim of the project is to contribute to support the efficient use of EU money in the participating countries, highlight best practices and ‘lessons learnt’, and widely disseminate these observations both nationally and internationally. Thus, the project will help to improve the level and quality of EU funding and fiscal policy for EU climate action and EGD delivery by focusing on the game-changing actions at the national level.
The EEB and the Clean Air Action Group (Levegő Munkacsoport) launched a new project in October 2020. It aims to fom the EU budget for the period 2021-27 and the European Recovery Plan. Consortium members provide expert input to the policy process and strive to fulfil the participatory principle.
The project raises awareness, builds capacity, and supports EU citizens, particularly young people, in building public support for ambitious climate change and development policies which have gender equality at their core.
Partner organizations bring together experience of climate change campaigning and communication in Europe, gender equality, European youth mobilisation, and climate change development programmes in the Global South.
