Green Action for the People and the Planet - EGP Climate Campaign
Now is the time to rebuild our systems, at all levels of governance, towards a more just, sustainable and resilient future. While we face the health emergency, we can't forget the climate emergency. Through the Climate Emergency Resolution and Climate Neutrality Resolution, the EGP has prioritized driving climate action towards climate neutrality by 2040 - sooner than the EU target of 2050, but in line with ambitious climate action. As Greens, we believe that climate action should support Europe's recovery and help reset us on a path towards a resilient future. Greens are already leading this fight all over Europe and we intend to keep it up.Learn more on our website at europeangreens.eu/climate-action/
European Green Recovery Campaign
EU member States are presenting their national recovery and resilience plans to the European Commission. Unprecedented amounts of funds will be allocated or lent to member states through the Recovery and Resilience Facility. These funds will need to be spent by 2026 by member states. They are critical to achieving a recovery that not only addresses the pandemic but also takes into account the ongoing climate crisis and lead the EU to the necessary transformation of its economic system. National plans will have a huge impact on our ability to achieve our climate goals in Europe and reach our Green ambitions.
Once formulated these plans must be approved by the Commission in order for them to be recommended to the Council who has to approve the plans.
The execution of the plans will then be monitored through the European Semester process.
The European Parliament was co-legislator on the RRF regulation itself and, although it doesn’t not have a vote on the national plans and their implementation, it has a crucial role in ensuring democratic accountability through scrutinising every aspect and raising concerns.
EGP Local Councillors' Network
The Local Councillors Network is the community for all Green local and regional councillors across Europe. We want to facilitate meaningful exchange among the local councillors, which includes networking, learning, and providing inspiration. But also, we will share knowledge, projects, campaigns and events.
We have developed an online platform for local councillors, where they can keep in touch with each other, where they can find lots of resources which could help them in their work as local councillor, but also register for events, or they can add their own projects, and ask specific questions to the community for feedback.
While this platform is not completely ready yet, you’ll be able to get a sneak peek into what it looks like, and what the functionalities are during one of the short guided tours.
Tilt! - The Changemaking Network
Tilt is a citizens’ movement demanding that the European Union works for all of us – not just a privileged few. At Tilt we can come together, as the green family, to make change happen.Through campaigns, petitions and citizens active engagement, we’re urgently pushing for a fairer, democratic, inclusive, progressive and greener Europe. With the far right on the rise, climate deniers all across Europe, and big corporations gaining more power than any government – we stand for a Europe that puts people and our environment first.
The Tilt community was founded by the European Greens – and our access to Green policy experts and members of the European Parliament makes us unique. By bringing together thousands of citizens with this expertise, we make sure we have both the people power and the deep knowledge to make real change. We love Europe, that’s why we are making it better.
Catalunya en Comú

Federation of Young European Greens
FYEG is the European umbrella organisation of Young Greens all over the continent - from Ireland to Azerbaijan and from Cyprus to Norway. Our 37 member organisations are youth wings of Green parties and Green youth NGOs and they represent around 50 000 activists across Europe. FYEG is also the independent youth wing of the European Green Party.
The Greens/European Free Alliance is a political group in the European Parliament made up of Green, Pirate and Independent MEPs as well as MEPs from parties representing stateless nations and disadvantaged minorities. We have 73 MEPs from 17 different countries.
The Greens/EFA Group's mission is to build a society where fundamental human rights and environmental justice are at the centre.
We defend the rights to self-determination, to shelter, to good health, to education, to culture, and to a high quality of life. We want to increase freedom within the world of work, not only by tackling unemployment but also by widening people's choices and building on people's creative potential.
We strive to deepen democracy via decentralisation of power and direct participation of people in decision-making, and by enhancing the openness and integrity of the EU institutions, including by making the Commission fully answerable to Parliament.
We want to build a European Union of free peoples based on the principle of subsidiarity and in full solidarity with all the peoples of the world. For us, this means re-working the foundations of the European Union, which currently over-emphasises its economic power at the expense of social, cultural and ecological values.
European Network of Green Seniors
The European Network of Green Seniors was founded 2005 in Brussels with the aim, to mobilize (green) seniors (55+) in all countries. Seniors should have the opportunity to participate in society and politics and to work in an intergenerational way with green policy and especially with questions affecting elderly.
During its 16 years of existence ENGS has worked for and with the growing aged population in Europe within the EGP framework and within the green parties in the member countries.
We are a stable organisation that has been very active despite our limited financial resources. We are determined to convince seniors to stay or become active in politics, to campaign and to vote for green parties. We have the necessary experience and we certainly have a future to fight for in all policy areas and, more specifically, when it comes to defending a proper space for and the dignity of the senior part of humankind. About activities - read the “History of ENGS” at our homepage or face book page.

We offer thought leadership on the issues that confront Europe; we seek to inform the debates on our Union’s future, involve citizens and stakeholders in the decisions that affect them and influence policy-makers in favour of an open, inclusive, transparent and united Europe.
On 9, 10, 11 June, we are back with this year's Progressive Governance Digital Summit to bring the progressive community together with a purpose: As the political discourse shifts from crisis management to the transition of societies and systems post-pandemic, progressives must lead a new political era defined by courage and action.
As we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, governing administrations and new political leaders must be ready to take swift steps towards an equitable and sustainable world. In preparation, this year’s summit is exploring political coalitions, new economic paradigms, and paths towards multilateralism that will help usher in a decade defined by progress.

The European Green Progressive Interfaith Coalition
1. We are all members of one of our European Green Parties and are at the same time also progressive people of faith, belonging to diverse religious and spiritual persuasions.
2. It is our goal to learn from and to support each other across the borders, cultures and belongings.
3. By forming a colorful faith coalition for diversity and human rights we want to set a counterweight to the rightwing parties, religious institutions and movements in our European societies.
4. We want to become a real political power to support the progressive Europe we dream about, cooperating in all fields of politics.
5. Our vision is an Europe with a strong constitutional democracy, a strong common welfare, clear ecological and social standards – being a clear European alternative to the USA and China.
6. As progressives we are radically inclusive and human rights oriented and standing in solidarity with all genders and queer people for common welfare and social justice. We transcend therefore the boundaries of our affiliations.
7. Write with us history and join the movement!
