European Day at Journées d'été, Strasbourg
For the second year running, European Day at the journées d’été summer university is being co-organised by the French Greens, Europe Écologie Les Verts (EELV), and the European Green Party. This year journées d’été will take place in Strasbourg, France, from 23 - 25 August.
The journées d’été is an annual event, bringing up to 1500 Green activists together from across France, for a few days of debate, learning, and fun, all while embracing the local culture of the host city. Greens from all over Europe are invited to join in, to share their European perspective and learn more about the French Greens and their work.
The European day will be held in both French and English on 25 August. The remainder of the program will be in French.
On Saturday, 25 August, a picnic "Meet the International Greens" will be organised at 12.30. You are invited to bring some traditional food and/or drinks from home and share them with the participants.
The countdown is now on until our pivotal Berlin Council between 23-25 November when we will come together among Greens to map out our shared future. On top of the agenda will be the vote to elect our Leading Candidates (known as spitzenkandidaten) who will represent the Green family at European level and blaze a path towards the May 2019 European elections. Alongside this, we’ll be adopting our Manifesto and launching our campaign plan.
The European Greens were delighted to gather the green family from across Europe together with Groen, one of the Belgian Green parties, between 18-20 May in the city of Antwerp, Belgium.
