Summer University » 14 July 2016 in Ciechocinek, Poland
Green Summer Academy: "Green Poland - Green River"
This event is a part of our annual Summer Universities project. It was an opportunity for the participants to discuss some important aspects of the Green political discourse and to look for Green responses to specific challenges in Poland – rivers’ destruction, Białowieża Forest’s logging plan and other environmental problems. Furthermore, the ongoing global and European challenges was taken into the account, such as climate change and energy transition, refugees’ crisis, Dutch No to Ukraine-EU association agreement, Brexit, TTIP & CETA.
The concept of sustainable development (or degrowth?) was debated with reference to some theoretical approaches, but also to the concrete Green solutions applied in response to economic, social and political challenges of our time.
This summer school also provided space for further networking of the Greens, along with fostering new practical skills of the participants.
