In November, GEF is launching the Green Academy with the support of Institute for Active Citizenship.

The Academy will offer those interested in enforcing climate and other green policies, especially on the local and regional level, the opportunity to learn more about respective topics and practical solutions, discuss ideas and network across regions in Czechia.

GEF will implement a series of regular, maximum 90 minutes long, online participatory workshops and webinars with content devoted to one particular topic for each session.

3 dimensions of the topic will always be explored: the European, national and local one.

2 speakers will be invited to each of the workshops; presenting current developments in the topic at the European level (EP), explaining links to the Czech state politics and legislation and specific local projects that would serve as inspiration for specific activities at the local level. The seminars will take place every 4-6 weeks. Currently, four instalments until end-March are planned.

Thematically, the workshops will focus on climate-related policies, such as energy, waste management, Blue-green infrastructure, mobility, CC adaptation, degrowth etc.

About the event:

In the first webinar of the Green Academy series, we will look at reducing carbon emissions and promoting renewable energy sources from the perspective of local and regional authorities. We will focus on practical steps that cities or regions can take towards carbon neutrality and greater energy self-sufficiency.
