GEF - Green European Foundation

Since its inception in 2008, GEF has worked on a number of projects across Europe, on many occasions with the support of Green political foundations at national level. Such projects are based on three pillars: study and debate (for example publishing studies and reports, such as the recent analysis of national renewable energy action plans), education and training (for example holding transnational training seminars) and networking Green europe (providing a platform for national Green foundations to cooperate). GEF will continue to expand its work in 2011 in a range of areas. These include a publication on the rise of populism in Europe, the launch of a website on the Green New Deal and further support to build capacity among citizens interested in Green ideas in Europe.

The European Parliament has today discussed the Paradise Papers, the new tax scandal that also sheds light into the UK's tax havens network. It is now time for the EU to act for tax justice!

Dealing with the Extreme Weather event organised by the Green European Foundation and Green House think tank in Lancaster was a subject of an enormous interest in public.

Clearly, as flooding and heatwaves become the new norm in upland England, we see the urge to lead the discussion on different coping and adaptation mechanisms on local and European levels.

Last weekend, we organised a conference "Brexit and the Green Transition" in London, hosted by the Green House think tank. The participants of the discussion brought a rare expertise to the table and convinced us, once again, that tackling 'Brexit' through our work programme has great importance.

Many policy recommendations addressing all public and private stakeholders are emerging from our GEF project in Bulgaria, Macedonia and Serbia.

More ideas expected in the closing conference today, organised in cooperation with BlueLink.net, to inspire the much-needed spread of innovation but also democratic practices towards sustainability, beyond business-as-usual.

Amidst breaking news in the #ParadisePapers of even more tax avoidance on a huge scale, revisit this piece about an effect of tax havens that is less talked about.
