INTRODUCTION

The Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament is determined to engage in a meaningful dialogue with all actors so we can find the best possible path out of coal, while supporting the regions and miners effectively.

The objective of the conference is to bring together representatives from different coal regions to discuss about a fair transition away from coal,to create synergies and a networking platform for future exchanges and to identify possible concrete areas of work convergence. We envision having two panels with interactive discussions, with short interventions followed by a debate and Questions & Answers with participants. Simultaneous interpretation in several EU language will be provided.
