Workshop “Green Corridor – Connecting the EU and the Balkans”

May 23rd 2016
Representation of the European Commission in Croatia,House of Europe, Ulica Augusta Cesarca, Zagreb

The EU and the Balkans are becoming ever strongly interwoven. With Croatia being
the newest EU member and Serbia, Albania, the former Yugoslav Republic of
Macedonia (FYROM) and Montenegro being candidate countries, the region is
connecting more closely with the European Union. Currently suffering from low
growth, high unemployment and infrastructure deficits, large-scale investments in
sustainable infrastructure projects could enable high benefits in terms of
employment, improvement of outdated equipment, interconnection with the EU28
and resource efficiency in the Balkans. Read more

Workshop “The impact of public investment programmes illustrated by the example of energy efficiency in buildings.”

November 25th, 2015

The European Union faces multiple existential problems with a stagnating economy and climate change being one of the biggest challenges of our time. Typically, not only the causes of these crises but also their (partial) solutions are highly correlated. With its 2030 framework for climate and energy policy, the European Union aims for addressing both issues: fighting climate change along with inducing green growth. Public investments are at the heart if this rationale. In order to pursue climate action and energy efficiency, significant investments are needed, which in turn would address the consequences of the economic crises through higher (green) growth and an increased independence from fossil fuels.

Since other strategies continue to lose their plausibility, it is a must to have an open debate on our current take on climate policy. Read more
