Digging the effects of industrial transition in Katowice

On November 21 and 22, Resolvo participated in and moderated the event organised in Katowice, Poland, as part of the LOTTI project (Interreg Europe).

The project’s second interregional meeting focused on the sharing of Good Practices by the various project partners, with a special focus on Cantabria’s experience within the “Besaya Europa” initiative promoted by the European Commission among the five programs chosen as pilot projects to test innovative ways of involving citizens in decisions on cohesion policy investments.

Also speaking remotely to explain more about the initiative was Alex Seeman, OECD representative.

Various representatives from different entities in Silesia presented the industrial transition in the region from different perspectives: social, economic, industrial and technological.

The partners shared several moments of group work and workshops to explore practices of citizen participation in the transition to a green and low-carbon economy in territories with a strong industrial characterisation.

Most interesting was the experience of the study visit to the underground water trail of Sztolnia Luiza (a historic coal mine) in the city of Zabrze!
