We are glad to announce the 2018 edition of the study visit to Brussels, organised for the participants of the our transnational project – European Green Activist Training in 2017.

About EGAT

The European Green Activist Training consists of training sessions for young Green activists in two phases: the first entails national trainings on domestic politics, as well as a session on European politics and institutions; and the second brings together the activists from different countries in Brussels to complement their training by experiencing the European political dimension first-hand.

This transnational project aims at the Europeanisation of existing trainings for Green activists in several European countries by making them more European in their content, but also more co-operative, by enabling young activists to meet and network.

Study visit to Brussels 2018

This year, we will gather EGAT participants from Finland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Croatia and Malta in Brussels between 05 and 09 March 2018 to visit relevant European institutions, civil society organisations and activists, and to take part in stimulating workshops in order to gain a critical insight into functioning of the EU and ways of making an impact as a young citizen.
