About the Event

This is the first meeting of a series of training sessions, part of our transnational project  European Green Activists Training organized by the Green European Foundation together with the Young Greens of Finland and the Green Cultural Association Visio.

25 participants from Finland will have the opportunity to learn more about the Green movement on the national and international levels. The participants will meet and discuss with representatives from different organisations and engage in panel discussions and presentations including on “Youth and the EU” and activism.

This session will be followed a second session in November, focusing on the history and functioning of the European Union and its institutions and on the Green political family at the European level.
