GEF is at this year’s European Forum of Left, Green and Progressive Forces, hosting a workshop on the way forward in tackling the climate emergency.
About the event
In cooperation with transform europe and the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), the Green European Foundation (GEF) is organising a workshop at this year’s European Forum of Left, Green and Progressive Forces, taking place in Brussels.
Various cities all over the world have declared a climate emergency in the past months and for more than a year, Fridays For Future and the Extinction Rebellion have been demonstrating and blocking traffic all over the world. At the same time, governments seem to not be acting fast enough.
It is up to progressive political forces to take this climate emergency serious and find answers to urgent questions: how can we achieve a good, a prosperous life for all now and in future? Moreover, how can we rally the political majorities for the necessary transformation of our societies? Is it possible to channel the powerful wave of climate awareness to redress the economic growth paradigm that caused this emergency?
The Green European Foundation, transform europe, and the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) will organise this workshop at the 3rd European Forum to share analyses and proposals on which differences might arise on specific policy solutions but also explore commonalities to stimulate political debate on the necessary way forward.
