GEF organised a workshop for representatives of Green foundations and institutes at the Global Greens and European Green Party Congress 2017 in Liverpool.
On Friday 31st March 2017, GEF hosted a stimulating workshop at the Global Greens and European Green Party Congress 2017 in Liverpool for actors involved in Green foundations and institutes.
11:00 – Capacity building and networking
This session focused on welcome and introductions between participants and provided a space for foundations’ representatives, both staff and board members, to get to know each other. It was organised as an interactive working session, where foundations could learn about each other and exchange concrete experiences, best practices, achievements and challenges on several aspects of their work (e.g. fundraising, relations with parties, organisational tips, strategic development).
14:30 – Identification of common political goals & operational cooperation
The second session of the workshop allowed for political discourse between the participants on specific topics (which were determined by the participants), with the intention of exploring the role of institutes and foundations in such issues as well as the potential for transnational collaboration in the future. This involved a “World Café” format to enable a high level of interaction and participation. The participants experienced working with each other and had an opportunity to develop common political campaigns/programmes and to establish increased levels of cooperation.
