FEPS HQ, Brussels (Closed-door)

The submission of the Territorial Just Transition Plans (TJTPs) which are part of the Just Transition Mechanism adopted in the context of the European Green Deal in 2019, and the process of drafting them, has revealed great divergences with regards to the inclusiveness and detail of the plans. This closed door event will be an opportunity for people working on the Territorial Just Transition Plans (TJTPs) to meet each other and discuss these divergences. Experts, local, regional, national, and EU level decision makers, as well as campaigners and members of civil society will gather to provide invaluable insights on the lay of the land to their peers. 

The stakeholder meeting will serve as a launch event for FEPS’ latest Policy Brief on the Territorial Just Transition Plans aiming to reduce these divergences. As the plans are entering the implementation phase, policymakers and civil society representatives can benefit from academic work that singles out factors that led to successful and inclusive transitions in past contexts in order to contribute to and further scrutinize the implementation of the plans. Notably key answers will be provided to the foundational questions: 

  • What lessons can be drawn from past regional transition processes for the implementation phase of the TJTPs?
  • Which criteria can be used to differentiate successful from unsuccessful transitions?
  • Which channels of influence and strategies can progressive actors like unions and civil society organizations adopt to make their voices heard?

Workshops analyzing the scale and type of transition at work in different contexts, and its interlinkage with European social policy, will complement the work being presented. Space will be given to sharing information and experiences around thematic clusters such as transparency, inclusiveness, capacity-building, and strategy.

The event will close with a panel of institutional representatives on the direction of travel for European social policy in the context of the Territorial Just Transition Plans, with the goal of achieving policy coherence as a precondition for viewing TJTPs as a springboard to a broader reorientation of EU policies.
