Webinar o novom Zakonu o zdravom tlu

Zelena Istra u suradnji s talijanskom organizacijom Legambiente 10. ožujka 2022. (10:30 – 13:00 sati) organizira webinar „Zdrave politike za zdravo tlo”.

Tema webinara, koji će se održati  u okviru projekta SOIL4LIFE preko Zoom platforme, je novi Zakon o zdravlju tla koji je na javnom savjetovanju do 16. ožujka 2022. SOIL4LIFE je projekt financiran LIFE programom na kojem talijanski, francuski i hrvatski partneri promiču održivo korištenje tla kao strateškog, ograničenog i neobnovljivog resursa.

Na webinar se možete prijaviti OVDJE.

Više informacija i program o webinaru možete pronaći OVDJE.

Nova Strategija za tlo koju je predstavila Europska komisija ne samo da ažurira mjere i ciljeve već poduzetih mjera, nego zahtijeva i promjenu vizije koja glasi: Europa mora zaštititi svoja tla i mora odrediti uvjete za održavanje tla „zdravim“. Razlog je što trenutno najmanje dvije trećine europskog tla nije u zdravom stanju. Tlo, kao resurs, je u Europi postao dramatično oskudan, toliko da se Europljani moraju oslanjati na tlo iz trećih zemalja čak i za proizvodnju osnovnih sirovina potrebnih za prehrambenu industriju, boreći se s primarnim potrebama autohtonih naroda. Tlo je postalo veliki geopolitički izazov. Provedba Strategije o tlu je prioritet i hitan izazov te zahtijeva novi Zakon o zdravom tlu i poziv na zajedničku odgovornost svih država članica EU-a.

POWERPOOR webinar za edukaciju energetskih savjetnika i mentora

Dana 4. veljače 2022. započet će prvi od pet webinara u sklopu projekta POWERPOOR na kojem će se educirati budući energetski savjetnici i mentori koji će tijekom projekta pružiti podršku energetski siromašnim kućanstvima. Na webinaru, koji će trajati od 11h do 16:30 h, polaznici će naučiti što podrazumijeva pojam energetskog siromaštva, kako ga je moguće prepoznati koristeći definirane indikatore, te na koji način inovativni planovi financiranja i koncept energetskih zajednica pomažu u borbi protiv energetskog siromaštva.

Webinar: Overcoming the COP26 Gaps - A Transformed EU External Action for a Climate-Just World

On 8 December 2021 (13:00 – 15:00 CET) a webinar is organized about overcoming the shortcomings of the UN Conference on Climate Change (COP26) held in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November 2021.

Decisions made at the COP26 conference to accelerate emission reductions, increase funding for adaptation and open a dialogue on mechanisms to address the losses and damage caused by climate change have barely boosted confidence in change. In addition, the conference ended with significant shortcomings in cooperation between countries and financial and technical support. Without significant cooperation, we will not be able to achieve a climate-just world this decade.

The webinar will explore how the EU’s potential can be exploited to help overcome the shortcomings of COP26 with its economic strength, excellent diplomatic position and existing ties.

A study commissioned by the Greens /EFA group in the European Parliament from the independent climate research center E3G will try to answer this question. The study is about how to align EU foreign policy with the Paris Agreement and the European Green Agreement.

Webinar o prevladavanju nedostataka COP26

Dana 8. prosinca 2021. (13:00 – 15:00h CET) održat će se webinar o prevladavanju nedostataka Konferencije UN-a o klimatskim promjenama (COP26) koja je održana u Glasgowu od 31. listopada do 12. studenog 2021.

Odluke donesene na konferenciji COP26 o potrebi za bržem smanjenju emisija, povećanju financiranja za prilagodbu i otvaranju dijaloga o mehanizmima za rješavanje gubitaka i štete uzrokovanih klimatskim promjenama nisu povećale povjerenje u ostvarivanje potrebnih promjena. Uz to, konferencija je završila sa značajnim nedostacima u dogovorenim suradnjama među zemljama te financijskoj i tehničkoj podršci. Bez značajne suradnje, ovog desetljeća nećemo moći postići klimatski pravedan svijet.

Prema tome, na webinaru će se istražiti način na koji se potencijal EU-a, sa svojom gospodarskom snagom, izvrsnim diplomatskim položajem i postojećim vezama, može iskoristiti kao podrška u prevladavanju nedostataka konferencije COP26.

Na ovo pitanje će se pokušati odgovoriti studijom koju je naručila grupa Greens/EFA u Europskom parlamentu od nezavisnog istraživačkog centra za klimu E3G. U istraživanju se proučilo kako uskladiti vanjsku politiku EU-a s Pariškim sporazumom i Europskim zelenim sporazumom.

Analysis of policies and measures to combat energy poverty in the private rental sector

As part of the ENPOR project – Measures to alleviate energy poverty in the private rental sector, an Analysis of Private Rented Sector Policies and Measures was created. The document analyzes and assesses existing policies to combat energy poverty in the private rental sector across the EU and beyond, and aims to explore the objectives, content and structure of policies in the private rental sector. All successful and unsuccessful strategies aimed at improving measures to combat and alleviate energy poverty among vulnerable citizens in the private rental sector were reviewed and broader structural challenges were identified in the type of support currently available to energy poor households.

The analysis provides an indicative insight into the overall typology of support measures and interventions. Given that no such analysis has been conducted globally, the Analysis proposes a framework to support the development of methodological tools and analytical approaches for future research in the private rental sector.

The analysis consists of three parts. The first part provides an overview and discussion of the collected measures, based on several criteria, including who is implementing the policy, the policy and timing factors, whether vulnerable tenants are included and whether some forms of public participation are involved in the decision making process. The second part contains an analytical summary of the policies based on well-established principles of energy justice principles, while the third part contains a conclusion with recommendations identifying gaps in existing knowledge, and practice and suggestions for further steps.


Webinar: Have your say in the transformation of the EU Industrial Ecosystems

CAN Europe and the EEB are organizing a webinar on Friday 10 September, 11:00-12:30 CEST, for civil society organisations to learn more about how European Commission is getting key industry sectors to change their business practices so that Europe can meet different environmental goals aiming to avoid irreversible or severe damage to life-supporting systems such as the climate and nature.

The webinar is split into two sessions: an open one with participation by the DG GROW Director General, and a closed one with only civil society organisations which is being designed to be as interactive as possible.

WEBINAR: "“How to make national CAP Strategic Plans deliver climate ambition in Central Eastern Europe?”

WEBINAR: ““How to make national CAP Strategic Plans deliver climate ambition in Central Eastern Europe?”

Register in advance for this meeting: 
https://us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZArdeygpzouHNNSjkHbvlm3NUQu1JZchVGg

European decision makers finalised negotiations on the post-2022 CAP reform. While the post-2022 CAP has shortcomings in terms of accelerating emissions reductions in the agriculture sector, Member States can still increase the climate ambition of the post-2022 CAP through well designed national strategic plans.

Member States are currently drafting their national CAP Strategic Plans that should be finalised and delivered to the European Commission by the end of 2021. The CAP Strategic Plans should become a tool to effectively steer the agriculture sector in the direction of the Green Deal’s objectives. To do that, Member States should mainstream sustainable farming practices in their CAP Strategic Plans and increase climate, nature and animal friendly farming practices through effective support.

Given the crucial importance of CAP Strategic Plans to increase climate ambition in the agriculture sector, in this webinar we will discuss how these plans can be steered towards climate friendly policies and what their co-benefits can be for the rural areas in Central and Eastern Europe. The webinar will also try to answer questions on how to boost broader societal dialogue about the role of agriculture in climate neutral just and fair economies.
