Recent developments on climate change: Citizens’ participation in environmental policy-making – Online Training Seminar

iSea and The Green Tank organize an online training seminar on “Citizen participation in environmental policy making – Recent developments in addressing climate change”. The aim of the seminar is to inform and empower citizens on current issues and policies related to climate change in order to enhance their participation in environmental governance.

The seminar will take place on Zoom, on Tuesday, May 17 2022, 16.00-20.00.

It will be delivered by Ioli Christopoulou, Policy Director of The Green Tank, and Nikos Mantzaris, Senior Policy Analyst at The Green Tank.

The seminar is organised in collaboration with the Laboratory of Environmental Management and Industrial Ecology, Democritus University of Τhrace and the Natural Environment and Climate Change Agency Greece (NECCA),  and it is targeted primarily to students and active citizens that are based outside the Athens area.. Participants will receive the material created in the framework of the project, as well as certificates at the end of the online event.

The seminar is organized as part of the project “Learn-Participate-Protect the environment”. It is the fourth in a series of seminars to be held in 8 Greek cities. The primary goal of the project is to promote, strengthen and safeguard the participation of citizens in processes related to the creation and implementation of environmental policies in Greece, with particular emphasis on three topics: the climate crisis, biodiversity loss and plastic pollution.

The project “Learn-Participate-Protect the environment” is operated by iSea and implemented in partnership with the Green Tank, under the Active Citizens Fund programme. It includes two cycles of informational and training activities consisting of webinars and live seminars during the academic years 2021-2022 and 2022-2023.
