Workshop for New Politicians and Activists
After the successful implementation of a transboundary workshop for young journalists in Tran, Bulgaria last June, this event took place in Skopje, Macedonia from the 15th to the 17th of October and broached the issue of implementing policies to develop a Green Economy in the region.
The workshop’s aim was to support new politicians and activists from Bulgaria, Serbia and Macedonia, who have an interest in environmental issues and in exploring new sustainable solutions offered by the Green Economy. This event is part of the Green European Foundation’s transnational project Journalists and Policy Makers Boost Green Economy, organised with the support of the BlueLink Foundation (Bulgaria), the Association for Sustainable Social and Economic Development Sunrise (Macedonia) and Drugi Novi Centar Association (Serbia).
The workshop provided the participants with important insights into cross-border environmental issues in the Balkans and explore Green policies as alternative solutions. This event served as a platform for knowledge exchange and a chance to enhance the professional skills of the participants. The training was implemented in English.
This workshop was organised with the financial support of the European Parliament to the Green European Foundation.
