28. März 2022 - Green Rural Deal: How Rural Regions in the Western Balkans Fight for a Zero-Carbon Economy

Municipalities in Europe’s rural regions are facing shrinking and ageing of their population, a shortage of skilled workers and, simultaneously, a high level of unemployment. The EUKI project Green Rural Deal wants to stop this appalling development.

Monday, 28 March 2022

11:00-12:00 CET

Wuppertal Institute, Germanwatch, Balkan Green Foundation, RES Foundation and Local Government Association of Western Macedonia are working in a bottom-up co-creational process in three target regions: Community of Kamenica, Priboj and Western Macedonia.

During the event, the project partners will share insights and challenges from their regions on the way to a zero-carbon economy. Participants will have the opportunity to actively contribute and share their perspective and experience.
