Join us in Croatia for our Green Academy 2020 conference and explore transformative pathways, novel solutions and institutional practices that can ensure ecological sustainability, an economy within planetary boundaries, and a just transition.

About the event

The Green European Foundation and Institute for Political Ecology are organising the 10th edition of the Green Academy.

Under the title “The Future is Ours,” this summer university will focus on cities and municipalities as the real changemakers and terrains for progressive political change.

The dynamic and interactive program is composed of workshops, debates and lectures designed to encourage participants to dive deeper into the municipalist world and seek solutions that can be the driving force for political change at the local level.

DEPARTURES

 

Practicalities:

The event will be in Croatian and English.

Hotel accommodation and two meals per day (breakfast and dinner) is provided by the organisers. Travel costs can be reimbursed up to €250.

Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers have been meeting various challenges, therefore minor changes to the program can still occur. This call is published at short notice.

Support for maximum 12 places is offered to participants from across Europe:

3 – the Balkans, Russia, Georgia, Ukraine

3 – Central and Eastern Europe

3 – Southern Europe

3 – Western and Northern Europe

Given the short deadline, the organisers ask for a short biography in English (no longer than 1 page) and a letter of interest (maximum 2000 characters) with two reference contacts (email and phone), preferably from people who have already participated in the Green Academy in previous years. Applications should be sent to ipe(at)ipe.hr by August 18, 4:00 PM CET. 

The organisers reserve the right to cancel the event last-minute in case of a COVID-19 emergency. The event follows a NO REGRETS POLICY: travel can be reimbursed only after the event has taken place and once the travel documentation was provided to the organisers (in accordance with the guidelines provided prior to the event by IPE).

The organisers will ensure basic epidemiological standards are met during the event, however also bear in mind the general COVID-19 guidelines that need to be respected outside and beyond the conference, for everybody’s safety and well-being.

Applicants will be informed about the outcome by August 19.
