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 GEF expert meeting last weekend in Barcelona brought more clarity regarding successful application of the different models of Basic Income.

After two study tours, we can clearly see that the Basic Income concept is worth considering as a viable alternative to our current social and economic structures.

Green European Journal puts️ Poland in focus this week 🇲🇨️ The Article by Bartłomiej Kozek asks why liberalism has failed to provide an adequate and powerful alternative narrative to the ruling party's message - and suggests ways that #Brussels and the EU can support such a narrative.

Greens are in a long battle against the herbicide Glyphosate. Thanks to the #MonsantoPapers we now have proof of Monsanto's attempts to manipulate scientists, politicians and public opinion to keep the Glyphosate around. Watch this informative video to see what the state of play is.

Thanks to the #MonsantoPapers we now have proof of Monsanto's attempts to manipulate scientists, politicians and public opinion. Check out this clip and watch this space to learn more ⬇️

The outcome of Austrian #election is good reminder that internal power dynamics can distort people’s perception of who we’re as a movement.

Situation in #catalunya is one of the most sensitive discussion points and #Greens feel strongly about dialogue as the only way forward!
