CDN General Assembly 2022 was planned to happen live next weekend in Tbilisi, Georgia and practice democracy in physical space once again after long COVID-19 years.
However, this is not possible anymore due to the Russian invasion and ongoing war in Ukraine. Taking into account instability in the whole region and consequent risks the Executive Committee has decided to move the General Assembly & accompanying events in an online/hybrid format.
This means the following:
– Feminists in Environmental Movement Training (7th March, for selected local reporters only) – fully online;
– Working Groups Meeting (8-9th March, for WG members only) – fully online;
– Conference on the Future of Eastern Europe (10-11th March) – postponed;
– General Assembly (12-13th March) – hybrid.
HYBRID meaning: Only current EC, Secretariat, Presidency and EC Candidates will travel as planned, however, they will be joining us in Belgrade, Serbia. No delegates/observers/representatives/guests will be present live.
Once again, we want to express our solidarity with the Ukrainian people fighting for their freedom, democracy and life. Our heart goes to our colleagues, activists and Young Greens who have been at the forefront of fighting for social justice, human rights, climate and environmental protection. Now they are under permanent threat and are facing the Russian military.
Therefore, besides the regular decision-making about the current and the future of our network, we will also be discussing and reflecting on the ongoing situation, showing support, sharing our perspectives and building solidarity even in an online format.
Hoping for peace and to see you soon online!
CDN EC & Secretariat
