The European Union is at a crossroads. It will take enthusiasm, dedication and a clear vision to put it on the path of sustainability and prosperity. This collection of articles looks at the ambitions, expectations and plans of the newly elected Green Members of the European Parliament and highlights the various aspects of the Green transformation they will be working on during the next five years. The publication is produced by the Green European Foundation in cooperation with the Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament and the Heinrich Böll Foundation European Union.
In which fields is investment needed in order to drive forward a green economic remodeling and generate sustainable growth? How should the financial system be organised in order to release enough capital for ecological innovations and investments? The articles that make up this publication by the Green European Foundation and Heinrich Böll Foundation attempt to answer the above questions from various perspectives: from the financial sector, to the Green political environment.
The Green European Foundation’s network continues to expand as the number of full members has grown to 19, while a new board was also elected at the General Assembly of the foundation held in Brussels last week.
