The Green Academy’s winter edition seeks to gather a critical mass at local level to discuss opportunities to foster political change on the local level. The area of urban politics is an ideal space to create community, to develop innovative models and to support political actors willing to engage in local politics.
How can we coordinate and strengthen civil society’s strategies to tackle urban issues and influence the political agenda positively? In advance of Zagreb’s local election, the ‘Good city for all’ project seeks to explore these questions in the framework of a European debate on the transformative power of urban politics in a two-fold event.
A public event will be organised in Zagreb on the 24th of April to gather civic and political groups in a capacity building workshop.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE UPCOMING EVENT IN ZAGREB ON MONDAY 24th OF APRIL!
Prior to that, a two-day seminar with selected participants was held in the idyllic scenery of the Plitvice lakes from 24th to 26th of March.
