Helsinki, Finland

From 2 to 4 December 2016, the Green European Foundation organised, with the support of Visio, a training for young green activists as part of its successful transnational project.


Also in 2016, young green-minded people gathered in Helsinki for a training on European topics as part of the Green European Foundation’s transnational project European Green Activist Training.

The training was organised in parallel to similar trainings in Catalonia, Czech Republic and Hungary, and culminated in a common study trip to Brussels to experience the European Union first-hand.
