2019 Annual Political Dialogue – Platform for Coal Regions in Transition

When: 25th – 26th November 2019

Where: Görlitz, Germany

Organizer: European Commission - Energy, environment and climate,


While EU coal regions share many commonalities, their paths towards decarbonisation differ widely. To ensure that no region is left behind in this transition, the European Commission launched the ‘Platform for Coal Regions in Transition’ in 2017, a key part of the coal and carbon-intensive regions in transition initiative and, since then, political dialogues are organised every year.


The platform works as an open forum, gathering all relevant parties, local, regional and national governments, businesses and trade unions, NGOs and academia. It promotes knowledge sharing and exchanges of experiences between EU coal regions and represents a unique bottom-up approach to a just transition, enabling regions to identify and respond to their unique contexts and opportunities.


Specifically, the 2019 edition will feature sessions and discussions at the highest level, and several study visits in the regions of Saxony and Brandenburg, Germany. Click here for more info on the event.

Organizer: European Commission - Energy, environment and climate


EU CITIZENV is an initiative launched by the Directorate General for the Environment of the EU Commission to encourage a fruitful dialogue between citizens and EC officials on how the young EU generation (between 18-25 years old) see the environment.
