The visit is organised by the Open Regional Fund for South East Europe- Energy Efficiency, and implemented by the German Association for International Cooperation (GIZ) within the project Regional Cooperation and Capacity Development of Parliamentarians of South-East Europe on Energy Efficiency and Climate Protection for representatives of six Western Balkans countries.
The visit is aimed at sharing experiences and holding meetings of delegations with members of the German Bundestag and other representatives of Bundestag in charge of implementing policies in the field of energy efficiency, urban mobility and protection of climate.
During the meeting, the work of the German Federal Council will also be discussed as well as the manner in which German parliamentarians advocate the implementation of the aforementioned policies. MPs from the Western Balkans countries will have an opportunity to meet representatives of think tank organisations, established by former parliamentarians, and active in the field of sustainable energy, such as: Energy Supervision Group (EGW) and Agora Energiewende. The visit also includes EUREF Campus overview tour, which promotes in its work the implementation of energy transition in Germany, so-called Energiewende, and simultaneously this is an example of a good “Smart City practice”.
