Call for participants: GEF transnational seminar on European Democracy

How can the perceived democratic deficit of the European Union and its institutional set-up be bridged? What role should the EU play in safeguarding democratic standards in its Member States? What can and should the EU do as a democracy promoter in its neighbourhood and in the world? If you are interested to discuss these questions from a Green perspective and are passionate about EU politics, then apply before April 27th to participate in this transnational seminar by the Green European Foundation.

Watch now: Documentary "Creating a People's Europe"

Five years into the financial and economic crisis, citizens' confidence in the Union is reaching historic lows. Is there still space for discussing further European integration? Is (more) Europe still a good idea? This film looks at Green solutions out of the crisis and discusses Green visions for the future of a prosperous and strongly democratic Europe, via interviews with politicians and civil society activists from across Europe. "Creating a People's Europe" is a project of the GEF for the Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament and in cooperation with the Heinrich Boell Foundation.

Taming the giant - towards a sustainable financial system

How to create a financial system that helps, not destroys, the real economy? Seven years on from the financial crisis that heralded the great recession, this question remains unresolved. The 7th edition of the Green European Journal addresses the issue, highlights some Green ideas and shines a spotlight on the lobbying might that is working to prevent change.
