About this course
During the European Green Activist Training Barcelona course, you will learn about Green values, meet politicians and experts working at the front line of fighting for positive change, and of course connect with plenty of other like-minded young people!
The course will give you insights into the political decision-making processes on the national and European levels, develop your skills as an activist to enact social change, and explore how Green values promote more equal and sustainable societies.
More specifically, the training course consists of two intense training weekends, and additional online training. The first one will take place in May, in an online modality, and the second one will happen in November in Barcelona. In between, an online course on Green Learning will take place. The program will culminate in a one-week study trip to Brussels to visit the European Institutions alongside EGAT participants from other countries (Croatia, Poland, Finland, Hungary and Czechia).
We encourage people from across Spain, and particularly Catalonia, and from all backgrounds to apply to take part!
Find out more about EGAT on the EGAT project page.
