The event is postponed, as it is estimated that the bill on PPC will be voted on the same day in the Parliament, and therefore all the relevant bodies in which the presentation would have taken place will be in Athens.
The "Phasing-out Coal, Reinventing European Regions" report was issued by the European Parliament's Greens-European Free Alliance political group and supervised by MEPs Ska Keller and Bas Eickhout. It outlines specific transformation challenges in key European coal and lignite mining regions, namely of Western Macedonia in Greece, Aragon in Spain, Lusatia in Germany and Silesia in Poland.
The report will be presented in Kozani, at an event organised by the Municipality of Kozani, in cooperation with the Heinrich Böll Greece Foundation, on April 25, 12:00-14:30, at the "Coventareo" Hall (7 Charisiou Mukas). MEP Ska Keller and the co-author Timon Wehnert, Wuppertal Institut, will present the key-findings and short interventions will follow by representatives of institutions of the region.
Simultaneous Greek-English interpretation will be provided.
