EU Member States are fraught with spatially distributed socioeconomic inequalities. For example, let’s think about the north-south divide in Italy, the east-west cleavage in Germany, or the polarisation between EU urbanised growth centres and their peripheral areas.

The EU’s transition agenda to a low-carbon economy creates specific challenges in those regions characterised by lower incomes, higher poverty rates, or lower employment opportunities.

This training will analyse the transition challenges faced by those regions. It will explore how those areas can manage a sustainable transition and ensure that workers and communities facing transition difficulties are protected.
