Bringing stakeholders together!

Posted by on Jun 13, 2014 in Renewable energy, Stakeholders | No Comments

In winter 2013 started with a series of training sessions and workshops. With specially designed trainings and workshops brings together policy and decision makers as well as experts from authorities on all levels – from local to EU-level. The events aim to show how conflicts between renewable energy producers and stakeholders of biodiversity and other ecosystem services can be turned into co-benefits and what contributes to this process. Furthermore, the seminars aim to encourage stakeholders to consider the results of the project and to apply the decision support system developed by and to establish a discussion and exchange platform.
