The main theme of this year’s Congress is “How to fight for climate and democracy”. How can young people with ideas and ideals at hand contribute to social and political change? What can we learn from movements like Fridays for Future? Which tools do successful activists use? How can we build and connect a movement?
About the Event
During the three-day Congress, 75 selected participants from across Europe will have the opportunity to come together and take advantage of different panels and interactive workshops. Panel debates and workshops at the congress are going to evolve around the strategies and experiences with fighting for climate and democracy in Europe and beyond.
In addition to this, the Green European Foundation (GEF) will contribute to the congress with a pre-event online course, providing for a common knowledge base for all participants, as well as a platform for debates ahead of their trip to Marseille.
