Our work in the Ecology component aims to an ecological transformation of the society and economy in Greece and Bulgaria towards carbon neutrality, focusing on two key areas; socially and gender just energy transition and circular economy. Through our work we therefore underline the contribution of energy democracy to a just energy transition and to tackling energy poverty. We highlight the often overlooked potential and opportunities inherent in this transition process. We seek to raise awareness among producers and consumers to change their behavior towards sustainable solutions on issues such as plastic waste reduction, mobility and agroecology. Furthermore, we seek to unite the voices of all key actors involved or having a stake in the just transition of the Greek society and economy (NGOs, local communities, businesses, activists, etc.) and to support open dialogue with the competent authorities at a regional, national and local level. Finally, through our extensive network of offices abroad we facilitate the exchange of knowledge and the collaboration of civil society and experts from Greece and the Balkans with agencies, institutes and other experts.

Green Deal in Greece

It is a fruitful dialogue around this strategy, the opportunities as well as the challenges entailed in its implementation in Greece.
