Following the 3rd General Meeting, some members of the 3Diverse consortium participated in the Šaleška Development Forum, a regional event that took place in Velenje on October 17th.

At the event, the future of business in the region was discussed, and experts and successful local entrepreneurs told us where the opportunities for the region’s development lie, what challenges they face, and what role local actors and the state play in this.

Among all the great speakers, the General Director of Coal Mine Velenje, Branko Debeljak, the Director General of Thermoelectric Power Plant Šoštanj, and Mag. Marko Mavec engaged in a discussion regarding the significant challenges confronting the coal mine and new energy projects in the Šaleška Valley.

Additionally, our consortium partner, Gašper Škarja, Director of the Utility Company Velenje highlighted the exceptional district heating renovation project in Slovenia, which aligns with our project’s focus on innovative sustainability initiatives. This information from the forum was vital for our project’s continued development and success.
