The 8th edition of the European Green Activists Training will kick off at the end of May. After two consecutive online editions, the Brussels Study trip will be held in-person and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome all participants.  The event will gather 115 green-minded youth from Finland, Croatia, Hungary, Czech Republic, Catalonia, Poland and Greece that will explore the European political sphere first-hand.

About the Event

During the five-day study trip, will have the chance to explore various topics such as climate justice and lobbying in Brussels through engaging with professionals, politicians, NGOs and other activists operating in and around the European institutions, as well as with each other.

With a range of formal and non-formal training methods, including interactive workshops, the trip will be a valuable learning experience for young activists brought together by Green values and a motivation to enact change.

Event Background

The European Green Activists Training (EGAT) consists of training sessions for young Green activists in various phases. These include the completion of the online course EU for Beginners, the participation in national training sessions in their respective countries on domestic politics, as well as on European politics and institutions. The final stage is the study trip, which brings all the participants from across Europe together in Brussels.

The EGAT project aims to Europeanise existing training programmes for Green activists in several European countries by incorporating more pan-European content and to make these programmes more cooperative by enabling young activists to meet and network.
