The project corresponds to the contemporary challenges caused by the Covid-19 in Europe. Already we see staggering unemployment rates in some countries, with millions of individuals and families losing their income and livelihoods. The socio-economic consequences include lost income, lost jobs, unemployment, increasing healthcare costs and rising debt, along with the many social, psychological problems that have accompanied the drastic protection measures. The COVID-19 pandemic made it clear that it is the moment to push the important changes in Europe to overcome the economic crisis. European Green Deal is one of the roadmaps proposed by the European Commission in the end of 2019 to transform EU’s economy into a sustainable one, based on economic growth strategies aimed at making the EU “a modern, resourceefficient and competitive economy where there are no net emissions of greenhouse gases in 2050 and where economic growth is decoupled from resource use”.
The action targets EWCs, Trade Unions and Employee representatives to enhance worker involvement in actions within companies to implement the European Green Deal as well as to promote transnational cooperation. The new conditions in Europe made it far more significant that employer’ organisations and trade unions need to take actions aimed at exercising workers’ participation within the company in the process of implementation of the Green Deal.
