Establishing a platform for sharing experiences of stakeholders affected by coal transitions in selected countries.
Year: 2022 Past Project
Climate Strategies in partnership with Wise Europa, the European Regional Framework for Cooperation, and Impact Hub Praha designed a Post-Coal Future Lab (PCFL). The PCFL had two streams, a Main Lab and Mini Labs.

The Main Lab aimed to ease collaboration, collective problem solving, and knowledge-sharing among affected people to achieve a just transition. It also aimed to build capacity around just transitions and systemic transformation. The focus will be on selected countries in Southern, Central, and Eastern Europe.
The regional Mini Labs aimed to bring together diverse stakeholders in Poland (Silesia & Wielkopolska), Czechia (Moravian-Silesian Region), and Greece (Western Macedonia). Their aim is to ease dialogue, knowledge-exchange, and establish a community of practice. They also aimed to identify challenges to just transitions and systemic transformation, and develop collective solutions as to how to tackle these challenges.
The project was funded by EIT Climate-KIC and over the course of the project there was close collaboration between the PCFL consortium and other Climate-KIC projects.
