On June 13, 2023, the first Adjust Stakeholder Workshop brought together 25 experts from various policy fields to address the topic of Just Energy Transition. Organized jointly by the BC3 – Basque Centre for Climate Change and ÖFSE – Austrian Foundation for Development Research, the workshop focused on devising measures for transitioning to renewable energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, while at the same time addressing energy poverty.
The diverse group of experts, coming from different backgrounds, collaborated throughout the day to develop a shared vision for achieving a Just Energy Transition in Spain. With special attention to vulnerable groups, the participants crafted specific policy packages aligned with the previously defined vision.
At the end of the long and fruitful day, Karin Küblböck, one of the workshop organizers, invited each participant to convey their feelings in a single word. Some sentiments that participants shared were motivation, collaboration and inspiration. In the following months, BC3 and ÖFSE will process the workshop’s outcomes into tangible actions as part of the ADJUST Project.
