Are you attending the upcoming 28th Council Meeting of the European Green Party? Would you like to build synergies with other political actors working on trainings and capacity building?
Green European Foundation is hosting a workshop at the council meeting of the European Green Party in Antwerp, Belgium.
The workshop aims at:
- Exchange of information on available trainings across Europe;
- Building synergies between parties and foundations working on trainings and capacity building;
- Mapping the needs for training within parties ahead of the 2019 elections to feed into GEF’s offline and online training offer in 2018.
About the event
Stemming from the belief that education and awareness are the first steps towards action, the Green European Foundation provides opportunities for building capacity and encouraging networking amongst Green actors and citizens across Europe.
In this interactive workshop, we will discuss about how we can enhance the ability of activists and Green actors to work on issues with a European dimension, what are the training need and resources available ahead of the 2019 European elections.
This will also be the launch of the beta versions of its three new online courses on Campaigning, European Elections and Fundraising.
