On 4 October 2022, selected high-level participants from diverse local movements, policy groups, and research institutes will gather, to explore:

  • What does (and should) the Green Deal say about the role of people and society?
  • Who is already ‘out there’ in Europe contributing to Green Deal objectives in practice?
  • How can organisations co-create transition pathways for just and sustainable change?.
  • How can we bridge the ‘shared’ middle ground between, for example, collectives/individuals, theory/practice, and social/technical innovations?

This is a chance to meet and interact with a curated network of diverse players (policyworkers, practitioners, scientists) working on just sustainability transitions across Europe. On top of that, it’s a unique opportunity to learn more about transitions thinking applied to your context.

The event’s outcomes will be fed back into the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research & Innovation (DG RTD), as well circulated to official Green Deal project working groups and Mission Secretariats. And by participating, you will become involved in downscaling EU-level policies to a regional level, discovering valuable insights on how it works on the ground.

Participants will also learn about the €528k SHARED GREEN DEAL funding call to be released in late 2022, for 24 organisations to run year-long regional/local engagement programmes (what we are calling our ‘social experiments’).

Express your interest by filling out this form. Places are limited so please express interest early to secure a place. We will get back to you ASAP! If you have more urgent questions, please you can reach out to info [at] sharedgreendeal [dot] euclass="link--inherit".
