Join us in this year’s European Youth Conference ‘Regain or Retreat? European Youth in an Age of Uncertainty’ in Gdansk, organised in cooperation with the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung office in Warsaw and European Solidarity Centre!

The three-day Conference in Gdańsk will address issues including globalisation and European and nationalist answers to it. From  24 to 26 July, we will explore the current challenges to open societies and inclusive democracies, and how people risk being divided along lines of integration and identity. Moreover, the programme will include practical workshops and ample space for networking.  

Let us discuss important points of reference and processes that are shaping the worldview of engaged young Europeans, who on an everyday basis are searching for ways to make a socially responsible, just and sustainable Europe happen, and also focus on the causes of and reactions to growing feelings of uncertainty, injustice and fear in EU member states in a beautiful setting at the Baltic Sea.

GEF Workshops

The Green European Foundation will contribute to this conference with three relevant workshops:

  • WIDEN YOUR OUTLOOK – NETWORKING SESSION (Tuesday, 25 July, 15h-17h): To face today’s challenges, it is crucial that grassroots movements and activists connect with each other and collaborate to strengthen their impact. This session reflects the needs of youth leaders to expand their network and identify resources which the other organisations/ participants present at the event can offer them.
  • ONLINE LEARNING FOR GREEN POLITICS (Tuesday, 25th of July, 17h30-19h00): During this workshop, we will share the experience of Green European Foundation in developing e-learning programmes. Furthermore, the workshop will provide an interactive space for exploring ways in which the participants can make use of new (online) technologies to advance their own learning and activities.
  • TELLING THE STORY: GETTING YOUNG GREEN VOICES HEARD (Wednesday, 26 July, 11h-13h): This workshop aims to give you some tips and tools to make your voice heard. From coming up with an angle to turn an important topic into a compelling news story, to pitching your proposal and getting your work published – we’ll walk you through the steps to get your story out there.
