The Just Transition Fund (JTF) aids Czech regions – Karlovarsky, Ústecky, and Moravskoslezsky – where 21,000 jobs are tied to coal and chemicals. Ensuring that the climate transition benefits all residents is crucial.
Furthermore, the JTF underscores youth’s pivotal role in sustainability and innovation. It actively engages and empowers them. In its approach, the JTF makes youth engagement integral, involving them in discussions and decision-making to develop innovative solutions.
Equipping Youth for a Post-Coal Economy
The JTF equips young residents with skills through education, internships, and mentorships, ensuring they actively shape the transition’s outcomes.
In conclusion, the Just Transition Fund goes beyond providing financial support; it’s committed to inclusivity, collaboration, and a sustainable future that empowers youth for transformative change.
Czechia’s Commitment to Youth and Sustainability
Moreover, Czechia stands out as a participant in the EUTEENS4GREEN project, valuing youth’s perspectives and innovative ideas.
Now, turning our attention to a specific project in Czechia, “Youth ready to take action for a just transition”, brings together youth concerned about the just transition of coal regions. Through networking and education, they are better equipped to address the unique challenges of their regions.
Furthermore, the project, “Evaluation and popularization of SMR as a fossil fuel-based plant alternative” ,is dedicated to promoting nuclear energy as an emission-free option for coal mining transition.
Additionally, the project “Young friendly region: Transformative opportunities for self-realization, education, and sustainability” seeks to change Bohemia’s image through responsible tourism. This initiative not only protects the environment but also creates opportunities for the younger generation.
