From Personal Resilience to a Green and Social Europe: Building Europe Together

The green movement is a key player in the defense of social justice. We firmly believe Europe has to be built as a space for solidarity and dignity instead of the Europe of austerity. Cooperation between progressive movements and social partners is the only formula to defeat the far-right and defend our rights.
The Greens have had the opportunity to take up leadership roles in different governments all over the EU. The desire for change with the aim to give people more support and safety in their daily lives has been the driving force behind the presence of the Greens in these governments. The Green Ministers present in this panel will react to the different issues raised through the testimonies and explain the actions they have taken in their respective countries and how the solutions could be replicated in different countries. They will also highlight the importance of European-level action to secure social and ecological justice.
