In order to maintain and develop the entire planet and the most important values humankind depends on, we must address challenges presented by climate change and loss of biodiversity, which are affecting sustainable development and causing persistent, widespread poverty. On the level of policy, Serbia is addressing these global issues within the Chapter 27 (Environment) and Chapter 15 (Energy) of its negotiation process with the EU.
This is why BFPE became active in efforts to raise awareness and knowledge about energy efficiency, renewable sources of energy, green economy, to mobilize civic participation on these issues and to encourage a much better cooperation of all actors involved in the creation and implementation of a more responsible and comprehensive energy policy.
By building on earlier successes, together with the Centre for Modern Skills, BFPE will continue to perform as informal secretariat of the Green Parliamentary Group. Also, BFPE will implement activities within the circular economy project, in cooperation with GIZ IMPACT project.
In agreement with the European Movement in Serbia, BFPE will continue with the coordination of the Working Group 15 (dedicated to energy) of the National Convent for Serbia’s EU accession.
