Dear Partners and Colleagues,QRCode De Carb bg

SZ REDA is the leading the De Carb project, which for 5 years united the knowledge, experience and willingness for change and development of 9 transition regions of the EU.

Each of these partner regions has gone its own journey in implementing the project, learning its lessons in the transition.

Of all the regions that participated in the project, only the leading one - Stara Zagora, does not yet have an approved TJTP.

On 17.05.2023 the De Carb partners will share what we have learned and what we have achieved and what is still to come.
Simultaneous translation will be provided at both languages as well as for participants on site and online.
