Your Guide to EU Funding

More EU money than ever before is earmarked for sustainable projects and the implementation of these projects requires close involvement of civil society including on local and regional level. This Guide to EU Funding shall help accessing EU funds. Accessing those Funds has often been problematic because of complex procedures and rules, so the knowledge from European level shall be easily made available to local and regional level actors, in particular Green local and regional councillors, stakeholders and partners.

Green Jobs

Successes and opportunities for Europe

By greening our economies, we can provide high-quality green jobs to fight unemployment and at the same time combat climate change and environmental decline. The EU can only benefit from such efforts. There is strong evidence to suggest that the green transition will have a positive impact on employment, reflecting the fact that sustainable economic activities like saving energy or farming organically are more labour-intensive than the activities they replace.

Concentration of market power in the EU seed market

A study commissioned by the Greens/EFA

Is the EU seed market really as diversified as the European Commission wants lawmakers and the general public to believe? Or is this market in fact transforming rapidly from a seed sector with a large number of competing small firms and farmers into an oligopoly, increasingly dominated by a small number of transnational agro-chemical-seed firms? This study shows that the EU market – in reality a number of smaller Member State (MS) markets - is undergoing a concentration process, with some MS becoming much more concentrated than others.
