The Just Transition Fund – available resources and types of activity. Not only strategic investments, i.e. projects in local authorities with support – concepts and projects, challenges and constraints. Using existing resources to achieve the transformation objectives: competences, staff, resources, land. The role of local governments – including mining municipalities. New specialisations of transition regions. If not industry, then what? Regional transformations and changes in spatial planning. Germany’s experience in the transition of the energy sector and the regions related to coal mining and use.
