About the Event:

The Green European Foundation in cooperation with horizontal school, with the financial support of the European Parliament to the Green European Foundation, is organising the “Online Facilitation for Green Minded Trainers” on 18, 23, 25 and 28 September 2020.



Online trainings and online events have been gaining popularity in the recent years due to their relative accessibility, convenience, sustainability, and easier admission to a variety of expertise from all over the world. With teleworking becoming the new norm, many event and training organisers find themselves in the position of having to transfer their working methods online thereby shedding light on the new opportunities for digital and hybrid collaborations.

These opportunities also enable us, green organisations, to reach further, to strengthen our collaboration across countries, and to solidify our work once an event has ended. For sustainability-driven organisations, being compelled to invest in digital infrastructures has also opened up the space for less polluting, resource-consuming work.

In this context, the Green European Foundation in cooperation with horizontal school, is organising this training for facilitators and event moderators working on green topics .
