As a result of commitment to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to the long-term vision of a climate-neutral EU by 2050, in the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in 2019 greek PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced the termination of operation of all Greece’s lignite power plants by 2028. In fact most of them -representing 80% of today’s installed capacity- will close down by 2023.

Starting from this fact, along with journalist Elisa Perrigueur, we travelled to the northern districts of Kozani, Ptolemaida, Amindeo and Florina in Western Macedonia the energy transition equals to an economic and social transition, as the local economy depends on lignite mining.

The Terrible Image

Snapshots from the protest against the new controversial environmental super-law proposed and approved by the greek government on the first day after the ease of the strict lockdown measures due to COVID-19. Environmental law has been drastically transformed with the purpose to attract investments. NGOs and over 80 civil society’s groups active on environmental issues oppose the new super-law worrying that it will put economy over the protection and preservation of the environment.
