Following the loss of the Austrian Green party during the national elections in 2017, the entire Austrian Green movement is at a crossroads. ‘Green Repositioning’ aims to start a process of re-organising the Green movement and to come up with a new Green narrative that links ecological and social concerns and lays out how to master the Great Transformation based on solidarity and resilience. A clear positioning and a joint understanding of socio-ecological politics based on Political Ecology will become a cornerstone in reinventing the Austrian Green movement. This ‘Green Repositioning’ project consists of several different events throughout the year all over Austria.

Within this framework, GEF will organise a Summer Academy with the support of Grüne Bildungswerkstatt.

About the event

Three key areas – six workshops – one Green identity. Following this motto, the Summer Academy will function as a laboratory within the ‘Green Repositioning’ project currently implemented by the Austrian green foundation Grüne Bildungswerkstatt.

Following the Regional Ideas Lab, organised by the Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament and the European Green Party on the days before the Summer Academy, the event will continue lively debates with change makers and pulse generators from all over Europe.

The aim is to develop working theses for the following three key areas that were identified:

  • Environment & Ecology
  • Democracy & Media
  • Economy & Future of Work

The project ‘Green Repositioning’, including the GEF Summer Academy, aims to contribute to a new Green narrative that answers the question ‘Where will the Green movement be in 2030, and how can it contribute to a better future?’.

Three workshops will be organised in English. The detailed programme will be available on this website soon.
