Are you interested in exploring the issues that connect struggles for a socially and ecologically just society? The European Green Academy will be a vibrant space for learning and experimentation to delve into key Green issues and examine the big questions of today and tomorrow. 

About the Event

The European Green Academy opens its doors for the first time! On this occasion, the Green European Foundation, in cooperation with Strefa Zieleni and Heinrich Böll Stiftung Warsaw will invite diverse green actors, activists, politicians, and academics from all over Europe to further explore the political situation in Poland and build bridges and connections between national and European-level debates.

Topics and methods

The Academy will be the key meeting point for over 150 Green actors and interested citizens from Poland and across Europe to connect, debate, and build capacities. With this initiative, the organisers seek to promote an inspiring learning environment, facilitating skills building to collectively bring about a better future. With that in mind, the programme will delve into salient green issues via a diverse range of formats, including workshops, training, plenary debates and networking. The Academy will also serve as a space to strengthen connections between the Polish and European Green movements. The sessions will be split into four different streams:

  • JUST TRANSITION
  • ENERGY
  • 🕊 PEACE & SECURITY
  • FEMINISM & LGBTIQA+ RIGHTS
  • Livestreamed sessions

The Green European Academy will be hosted by Sebastian Wehrsig
