Today begins the fourth edition of the Just Transition Platform Meeting – Coal Regions in Transition virtual week and Carbon-intensive regions seminars, hosted by the Commission.

For the next three days until 17 November, the meeting in an online format will gather representatives from coal, peat and shale oil and carbon-intensive regions around the EU. Commissioner for
Energy, Kadri Simson, will deliver a speech at the opening session. In the framework of several thematic sessions, Member States, local and regional authorities,
non-governmental organisations, social partners and EU institutions will exchange experiences and learn from one another in the journey towards a just transition to a climate-neutral Europe.

The event will provide participants with updates on the state of play of the
Just Transition Fund
programming negotiations and the Territorial Just Transition Plans, as well as an update on EU energy and climate policies, also in light of recent coal phase out
announcements by several Member States. The agenda will also feature the
launch of the Just Transition Platform Working Groups
on chemicals, steel, cement and horizontal stakeholder strategy.

A Multi-level Dialogue has also been organised by the Committee of the Regions as a side-event to the Just Transition Platform Meeting. The
Just Transition Platform
assists EU countries and regions with the just transition providing comprehensive technical and advisory support as a single access point and helpdesk. All details can
