We develop and promote legal initiatives contributing to an incremental transformation towards clean and decentralized energy production and consumption in EU countries. A legal environment that increases the transparency and accountability of public decision-making on energy issues, and restricts the influence of energy monopolies and oligopolies, is a necessary precondition for the transformation to occur.
We develop and promote new business models that better integrate societal interests in corporate purpose, governance, and decision-making.
Money, power, and politics are often closely intertwined and this results in low levels of trust in public institutions, not only in the Czech Republic and other Central and Eastern European countries, but within the EU as a whole, and worldwide. There are a number of corrosive byproducts, including the diversion of public money to private accounts, companies with anonymous ownership structure, and to political parties and interest groups.
Empowering people We systematically work to empower citizens and local communities in the Czech Republic and in Poland by helping them to assert their rights and actively participate in public affairs. By providing support to active individuals and local initiatives we aim to strengthen civic society, which is the basis for the solution to the systemic corruption that is deeply embedded in our governance systems.
