About European Green Activist Training (EGAT)
During the EGAT course, you will learn about Green values, meet politicians and experts working at the frontline 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 societal change, and explore how Green values promote more equal and sustainable societies.
More specifically, the training course is comprised of two intense training weekends taking place in Hungary, an online course on Green Learning , and culminating in a one-week study trip to Brussels to visit the European Institutions alongside EGAT participants from other countries.
We encourage people from across Hungary and from all backgrounds to apply to take part.
