European Greens Activists Training preparations underway!

Preparations for our first EGAT training are underway, following a meeting with the other project partners in Serbia this month.

EGAT is a training course held across Europe organised by the Green European Foundation (GEF) to which we are partners. This is the first time that Ceratonia is participating and this year there are five partners in the project - each of which will organise their own EGAT in their countries.

The aim of the EGAT is to promote green values and to promote green politics in society. There are 4 components to the training course: National Trainings, E-learning, European sessions and a Brussels Study Trip.

We are all very excited, we have a full training program planned - so stay tuned for more details :)

On Green Economics, Migration and Climate Change

Earlier this month, Danika, one of our project co-ordinators attended the 12th Annual Green Economics Conference organised by the Green Economics Institute in Oxford. During the three day event, various topics were discussed including migration and climate change, as well as the green economic aspect of each topic.

During the event, Danika chaired three panel sessions and also gave a short talk on the migration situation in Malta.

The Green Economics Institute was established in 2004 and has now grown into a leading thinktank and development incubator for Green Economics and the Green Economy. More information on the Green Economics Institute and on the conference can be found here.

We're rebranding!

We are very excited to launch our new logo :) We're rebranding and open to new members. If you're interested in joining us, get in touch!

European Green Activists Training

The European Green Activist Training consists of training sessions for young Green activists in two phases: the first entails national trainings on domestic politics, as well as a session on European politics and institutions; and the second brings together the activists from different countries in Brussels to complement their training by experiencing the European political dimension first-hand. The European Green Activist Training project aims at the Europeanisation of existing trainings for Green activists in several European countries by making them more European in their content, but also more co-operative, by enabling young activists to meet and network.

Good Governance, Good Practices: Conference

In September, Green European Foundation together with Ceratonia Foundation Malta will organise a conference which will discuss examples of bad governance in Malta and at the EU level and the implications this has for Euro-scepticism and populism. Bad governance examples will be compared with good practices and Green alternatives at the European, national and local levels. The core of the debate will be to highlight where Greens have succeeded in disseminating good practices and how we can continue generating positive impacts on governance. This public event will gather Green politicians and activists, civil society activists and journalists to discuss these matters while providing a platform for networking among Greens and civil society organisations active in the field. Registration: Stay tuned
Date: 8-9 September 2017
