GEF, with the support of Fundacja Strefa Zieleni, is hosting a series of regional Green Post-Corona Talks for Poland to debate the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic from the Green perspective. The GEF Green Post-Corona Talks launched in March will therefore be enhanced by discussions for the specific Polish regional context.

About the event

The series will tackle a variety of issues such as practices of governments in various European countries and their effects, about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and of the unfolding economic crisis on democratic practices and the possibilities of dialogue. The discussion will also address international solidarity and its role in preserving the foundations of democracy, about the role of the European Commission in fighting this pandemic and how to find common EU approaches. Moreover it will address how cultural changes will affect social participation and can make societies passive and subordinate to power, as well as debate about the impact of the rapid development of digital technologies on civil liberties.

The first edition will be devoted to the issues of democracy and dialogue, initiating a much needed debate in Poland where authoritarian tendencies are prevailing, the rule of law is under threat and internal divisions are dominating the public discourse.

Urszula Zielińska – Member of the Polish Parliament for the Green Party (in the Civic Coalition Club) and member of the National Board of the Polish Green Party.
