"The Just Transition Fund: where do we go from here?" - Manuel Marin Dinner Talk with Aleksandra TOMCZAK (Cabinet Executive VP Timmermans)

From 19:00 till 20:30

8000 Bruges


On Tuesday 24 November 2020 (19h00-20h30 CET), Aleksandra TOMCZAK will give a lecture on the topic of the Just Transition Fund. In an allusion to Martin Luther King's 1967 book Where do we go from here: Chaos or Community, we will contemplate where the Just Transition Fund comes from, and where we are headed now if the Fund wants to be a vector for the EU's Just Transition and Green Deal.

Aleksandra TOMCZAK is responsible for Just Transition in European coal and carbon intensive regions in the Cabinet of Frans Timmermans. Prior to that, she was leading the establishment of the European Commission Platform for Coal Regions in Transition and was responsible for the European Commission policy on coal. Ms TOMCZAK holds a graduate degree in European Politics and Administration from the College of Europe and a graduate degree in International Relations from Sciences Po Bordeaux and Cardiff University.
