Are you interested in political ecology? Would you like to hear thoughts on how to connect the struggles for socially and ecologically just society? Join our Green Summer Academy in Strasbourg!


The first GEF summer university ever held in France will take place in the proudly European city of Strasbourg, home of the European Parliament. At the center of the event, we aim at exploring an important question for the furthering of green justice: how can we bridge the fight against social inequalities and the fight against environmental inequalities to pursue a just eco-transition?

About the event

The summer university will be a great opportunity for French activists to get to know the work and publications of the Green European Foundation. Participants will be able to discover the production of the Green European Journal and will have a chance to learn more about the GEF online course Impact Europe.
