The upcoming decade to 2030 will determine the success of humanity’s shift to a sustainable trajectory that will integrate environment protection in all facets of economic and social activity. While sustainable development is a recognized global objective, as expressed in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, agreed by the United Nations in 2015, the challenge of its attainment remains.
The Green Tank aims at the acceleration of this shift through its research-based analysis, advocacy and engagement with key stakeholders at the local, regional, national and European level.
The Just Transition of coal and lignite mining regions to sustainable economic activities constitutes a field of particular interest and activity for us. The decades-long monoculture of coal and lignite in these regions has rendered local economies dependent on mining at multiple levels, while leaving deep wounds to the environment and human health. Focusing initially on Western Macedonia, we aim to ensure that no citizen in the 42 coal regions of Europe is left without support, as Europe proceeds with an irreversible shift to a zero carbon economy.
