Greens meet Changemakers

Can Europe afford not to sanction against discrimination and racism?


A Greens/EFA conference

Few groups have historically been so persecuted, discriminated and harassed than the Roma people. In almost all of Europe the Roma minority were and have been denied the right to permanent housing, labour and education, which is still the prevailing situation of the majority of Roma. Today we see a new wave of anti-Ziganism. The Nazis organized in the 30's a battle against what they called organized begging. Have we learned anything from history? How should we respond to harassment and threats against Roma today?

Why Soil matters?


A European perspective

Transport policy and climate agenda (COP 21)


A Greens/EFA conference

This conference will deal with the impact of the different means of transport on our climate. What are the lessons to be learned on testing emissions from cars ? Do we still underestimate the impact of the air sector on the atmosphere and greenhouse gas emissions?

A longer life-time for products


a win-win solution for European consumers and businesses

It seems we have to replace consumer products more and more frequently. Often it is cheaper and easier for consumers to buy a new product than to repair it or replace parts. There is little incentive to prolong the life of a product through repair, nor to re-use or recycle it. It is ever more apparent that resources are becoming scarcer and in the future this can cause serious problems for the environment and the economy. This Greens/EFA conference therefore aims to examine the win-win benefits of a longer product lifetime, for consumers, businesses, society and the environment.
