It is important today to lay the foundations not of rebuilding the past, but of building the future – on the basis of sustainable development, without repeating the mistakes of the past, for the sake of a better future.
Tamara Malkova, International Charitable Organization ” Information Center Green Dossier”:
Integrating the principles of green policy into this process from its very beginning should become an end-to-end task for all involved structures and society as a whole. The development of recommendations and specific proposals for green recovery for various industries and territories is a necessary step for the proper reconstruction of Ukraine.
What will be the result?
The analytical document will be presented, available on the website of the platform and participating organizations, and will be distributed to regional and national structures responsible for the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine.
The principles of green recovery will be taken into account in the reconstruction plans of Ukraine.
