Every year, the Green European Foundation organises and supports a number of Green Summer Universities across Europe. These educational and political events are hosted throughout Europe in collaboration with many national Green partners. Each summer school usually explores one or several topics, reflecting relevant ongoing social, political and environmental issues and providing participants with analysis, space for debates and capacity-building.
GEF specifically supports summer universities by bringing a strong European dimension to events. This is done by organising workshops on EU policies and hot issues by inviting speakers from other countries to shed a different light on the topics discussed or by encouraging foreign participants to join the events.
