British–Croatian Fellowship Programme Climate Change and COP26
Open call for candidates to attend a 4-week online educational programme aimed at future Croatian decision-makers
The British Embassy in Zagreb is delighted to announce the third round of its Fellowship Programme, a four-week online educational programme for future Croatian decision-makers.
The purpose of this year’s programme is to learn about the UK’s policies on tackling Climate Change, exchange experiences, as well as to create partnerships between the two countries, in the run-up to COP26 Climate Conference to be held in Glasgow in November next year.
The programme is designed for individuals working on climate change issues for the Croatian government, NGOs, or Croatian businesses.
We aim for the programme to create opportunities for future cooperation, as well as potential collaboration in a series of climate-related events throughout 2021.
The programme will be comprised of four weekly half-day sessions, organised via Zoom, on a targeted set of topics, with the participation of UK experts on climate change. The sessions will be dedicated to tackling climate change and driving climate action, developing initiatives that reduce carbon footprint, drive progress in areas of transport and nature and promote green technology expertise in business and trade.
