FES Regional Dialogue SOE launched in October 2020 a new, 8-month program titled “Engaging Political Parties, Trade Unions, and Activists for Socio-Environmental Change” (EPP TU). The energy transition is a difficult, time consuming, yet also pressing issue of our time. The complexities of this issue rise if the main actors lack the necessary knowledge related to these processes. This program aims to address these challenges by enabling young political party members, trade unionists and activists to advocate and argue for a just energy transition in the Southeast European region.
EPP TU offers a variety of educational content, from brief online lectures, to more interactive workshops and trainings. The transfer of knowledge focuses on the policy-making process, including policy-rationales and different stakeholders. While the first portion of the program will be held online until May 2021, we aim to invite participants of the program to an onsite week-long camp for an extensive energy transition and climate change training and networking, if the conditions allow for it.
