European Green Activists Training (EGAT) is a project organized by the Green European Foundation in cooperation with the Sustainable Development Forum Green Window. This is the fifth year of the project taking place in Croatia. Until now, over 100 high school and university students, as well as young professionals from all parts of Croatia, took part in the project.
About the Project
The aim of the EGATV is to familiarise participants with green topics (climate change, biodiversity and environmental protection, human rights and democracy, feminism, active citizenship), green policies and sustainable development policies, as well as the institutions of the European Union. Through various activities and discussions with the representatives of international organisations and the European Union, we aim to explore the opportunities of active and professional participation in the development of a greener and more just society.
Many EGAT participants remained active in the fields of sustainable development and green policies, while some even had the opportunity to do an internship and find a permanent position in the institutions of the EU.
Along with Croatia, participating organizations come from Finland, Greece, Hungary, Catalonia, Poland and the Czech Republic.
The project consists of three national training sessions and one study visit to the European institutions in Brussels:
- First national training (Red Cross mountain lodge, Sljeme) – 1-3/10/2021
- Second national training (Red Cross mountain lodge, Sljeme) – 26-28/11/2021
- Third national training (Red Cross mountain lodge, Sljeme) – 17-19/12/2021
- Study visit to Brussels – end of February/beginning of March (exact date TBA)
