The course is geared towards high- and mid-level civil servants of the EU’s Eastern Partnership countries, who are directly involved in the process of developing, implementing and evaluating policies supporting the transition towards a greener and more circular economy. The goal of the course is to upscale policy action on green and circular economy by strengthening the policy makers’ abilities to analyse and design environmental/green economy policies and tools. After completing the course, participants will be able to:
- Define green economy, SCP and related concepts and explain their value in regional and national contexts
- Discuss why the green transition is important for EaP countries
- Describe social, environmental, and economic benefits from the green transition; and
- Analyze the evolution of the green economy and SCP at an international level.
Participants will also develop a concrete green policy action plan or project that aims to enable green economy in their country!
