European Environmental Bureau and Clean Air Action Group (Levegő Munkacsoport) has started in October 2020 a new project with the participation of CEEWeb (membership across CEE), Economic PoIicy Institute (BG), Centre for Transport and Energy (CZ), Green Liberty (LV), Polish Green Network (PL), Focus Eco Center (RO), Umanotera (SI) and Centre for Sustainable Alternatives (SK). The project is supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). This project aims to have an impact on the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), i.e. the EU budget for the period 2021–27) and the Recovery and Resilience Facility by providing inputs to policy process work, exchanging views, increasing awareness on the necessity of making this EU budget climate-proof and developing targeted recommendations for improving the use of EU funds.
Climate Action by EU Citizens is a project funded by the European Comission running from 2020 to 2024. 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. A diverse consortium of 20 organisations under the umbrella of Oxfam and the Climate Action Network Europe (CAN Europe) are part of this initiative. Our activities will take place in 13 EU Member States. Partners 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.
The Center for Transport and Energy, as a member organization of the international network CEE Bankwatch, participates in a project financed by the European Climate Initiative EUKI, which is an instrument of the German Federal Ministry of the Environment. The main theme of the project is energy transformation and socially just transition from coal-dependent economy. The project aims to support change in the energy sector in order to meet the climate commitments stemming from the Paris Agreement. In the Czech Republic, within the project, we focus mainly on the just transition of our coal regions. Our aim is to strengthen the coal regions and help them get rid of their dependence on coal mining and burning.
A follow-up project to UNIFY: The EU Connection to Combat Climate Change is a regionally oriented project funded by the German EUKI Foundation and a coordinated by Climate Action Network. It aims to increase ambitions and achieve long-term climate strategies in the Visegrad Group countries, Romania and Bulgaria.
Since 2019, we have been participating in the European LIFE UNIFY project coordinated by the Climate Action Network (CAN), which aims to support the timely and effective transition of EU Member States to a low-carbon economy. Within the project, we focus mainly on the following areas: national climate and energy plans, setting up a new EU budget, motivation and support of cities in adopting their own climate and energy strategies.
