Green jobs – knowledge, skills and competencies for future economists and lawyers

This workshop is aimed at students from the Economics and Law faculty.

Environmental lawyers from the NGO Front21/42 will explain the EU directives and legislation relevant to the Western Balkans countries, and will showcase a successful campaign against the building of coal-power plants. Participants will then be divided into groups. The lawyers will apply Macedonia’s energy laws and regulations to build a case around planned fossil fuel investments. The other group will develop a campaign to mobilise people and create media pressure to turn the investments in renewable energy projects.

The workshop will finish by presenting the approach the groups have taken, and the participants will be involved in future campaigns and projects by the environmental NGOs.
