About European Green Activist Training (EGAT)
During the EGAT course, participants learn about Green values, meet politicians and experts working at the frontline of fighting for positive change, and of course connect with plenty of other like-minded young people!
The course gives them insights into the political decision-making processes on the national and European levels, develop skills as an activist to enact societal change, and explore how Green values promote more equal and sustainable societies.
The aim of EGAT is to familiarise trainees with the institutions of the European Union, green topics, green policies, and sustainable development policies, and through various activities and discussions with representatives of international organizations and representatives of the European Union, to explore opportunities for active and professional involvement in building a greener and more just society.
The training course will be comprised of two weekend training sessions in the Czech Republic, an online course, a preparation session for the Brussels trip and then culminating with a one-week study trip to Brussels to visit the European Institutions alongside EGAT participants from other countries.
