Destination Balkans 3.0: Digital Debates – Environment

European Fund for the Balkans has recognized a new sphere of civic engagement and activism across the Western Balkans: environmental protection and struggle for the commons. It is a relatively new phenomenon in the region, and it consists of numerous local or municipal movements struggling for environmental justice in the midst of booming ecological threats (i.e. alarming rise in air pollution, devastation of rivers with small hydro power plants, destruction of urban greener). Politicians and decision-makers are usually silent about the issues, or without adequate responses and policy proposals. The local civic activists and organizations are becoming actors who put these issues on the public agenda. EFB wishes to support and empower them in this endeavor.

Main partner: DG REGIO.
In collaboration with the European Fund for the Balkans, Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), Courrier des Balkans, Friends of Europe.
