Annual political dialogue (Politische Jahrestagung der EU-Kohleplattform)
25. November 2019 - 26. November 2019
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 get a view of concrete transition projects in the Lausitz.
