What do Greens stand for?
The Green political movement grew out of the anti-war movements during the Cold War (such as the demonstrations opposing the Vietnam war) as well as the 1968 movements against bureaucratic elites, repressive regimes, colonization and for human rights, social progression and peace. Thus the Green family is diverse: it includes environmental activists, left leaning economists, social democrats, social movement activists ranging from feminists and LGBTQ+ activists to Worker’s Unions fighting against income inequality, organic farmers, human right NGOs and ecological academics etc.
At the center of the ideology is sustainability, social justice and representative democracy. Due to these principles, Greens demand social solidarity in the form of progressive taxation; income equality; an end to a colonial look at global politics; transition to renewable energy sources; ecological consciousness in political decision making; emancipation and awareness of ones human rights and the expansion of those for achieving a more peaceful, educated and just society.
If you wish to learn more and more in depth about what Greens do, who they are, and how Green minded policies can shape the societies in the region, apply now!

Practicalities:

  • Accommodation and meals during the trainings, working materials as well as travel costs to the venue, are fully covered by CDN. Please, note that participants will be sharing multiple-bed rooms in an ecological center.
  • Selected participants are expected to be present in Serbia for two full working days (+2 days for travel)
  • The working language of the trainings is English, however, not speaking English should not stop you from applying as there will be many people willing to translate and some sessions will take place in Serbian/Montenegrin/Bosnian/Macedonian if we see the need.
