About Transition Opportunities project

The general objective of the Transition Opportunities project is to promote the contribution of EU cohesion policy, Just Transition Fund, and Recovery Plan for Europe to ensure smooth and just transition to a climate-neutral economy of the regions that will be most affected by the green transformation.

To achieve this objective, we organised six regional events to raise awareness of the contribution and the results of the cohesion policy in Bulgaria; we conducted sociological surveys of the attitudes towards the Green Deal and awareness of cohesion policy’s instruments, mapping of best practices and social media challenges.
