23-24 September 2021 - Virtual Conference


Lough Boora, Co. Offaly

Welcome to the ENCORE 2021!

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to announce that the ENCORE 2021 Conference will take place Virtually this year. We had hoped to host the conference in the historic Irish town of Tullamore, Co. Offaly. Tullamore is located in the heart of Ireland’s Midlands, a region at the centre of Ireland’s Just Transition programme, which seeks to move our economy and society into a low carbon future.


The Just Transition concept is central to the 2021 conference, and will frame the discussions on three specific themes; Climate Action, Circular Economy and Ecosystem Services. Indeed, achieving a Just Transition will require action on all of these fronts, and more. The three themes also represent a continuation of the ENCORE network’s efforts in these areas, following on from the work of the ENCORE 2018 Conference in Herning, Denmark.

YouthCORE 2021

ENCORE 2021 will also continue the YouthCORE tradition, and hold a youth conference leading up to the main event. YouthCORE ensures the voices of young people are heard and the YouthCORE outputs form a crucial input for the ENCORE Conference and the ministers’ discussions.
