Following the success of the second European Ideas Lab in Brussels that gathered 500 changemakers from all over Europe on 1-3 March 2018, the Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament and the European Green Party, together with the Austrian Green Party and the Grünen Bildungswerkstatt, are proud to invite you to the next European Ideas Lab – taking place in Graz, Austria, from July 5th, 17.00 until July 6th at 20.00.
Located at the heart of Europe, the European Ideas Lab in Graz will offer changemakers from Central European Countries (Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia) the opportunity to meet with local and European Greens, to exchange, debate and learn from each other.
Civil society organisations, everyday activists, citizens' movements, artists, social entrepreneurs and ecopreneurs, your are all invited to shape this event, share your ideas and forge visions with us on ways to build a greener future for Europe.
While each of us has a different role to play, we believe that the European Ideas Lab can provide a space where changemakers and Greens from different parts of Europe can engage in a spirit of mutual trust, reflect on the common struggles we face, and exchange on the positive alternatives we want to bring in society. It is also a place for all of us to network and learn from each other, in a creative and inspirational atmosphere.
In Graz, we will focus on the topics of environment & ecology, democracy & media, and economy & the future of work.
Participation to the event is free of charge, but registration is necessary. Please also take note that English will be the only working language used during the event.
