The New Jobs: Transition from Coal to a Modern Economy


Historically, the job-creation has always been preceded by losing jobs. In global science and practice there is no univocal position on the decisions to be made in this process.

This report by WWF Bulgaria under the scope of EUKI project Regions and Municipalities for a Just Transition examines in how far lost jobs in the Bulgarian coal sector are replaced by newly created modern economy jobs. According to the authors, one of the key components and counteractions to this socio-economic transition process is the implementation of a just transition to a clean, circular economy in the context of the European Green Deal.
