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.
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.

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.
