Economic Transitions in US Coal Communities

This summer, we toured the US Appalachia region with energy expert Timon Wehnert of the Wuppertal Institute to visit communities in Kentucky, New York, and Pennsylvania and see how they are transitioning from a coal-based economy. 

The tour included meetings with community leaders and events which facilitated an exchange of US and German experiences with a just transition from coal. Below are some highlights from the trip.
