Transformation of the Konińskie lignite subregion

realization time: 03.2018 – 12.2018

The aim of the project is to prepare a socio-economic and technological transition strategy for Konińskie subregion. Based on the concept of a just transition strategy we would like to propose the solutions for the local communities in which jobs and wellbeing are endangered by fast changes in lignite mining and lignite based energy. The project relies on animating collaboration in the subregion: we will aim at presenting clear recommendations, possible to implement by the regional and local governments  and private sector.


The project is financed by the European Climate Foundation.
