Great, participants from all six participating countries of the Strategic Partnership  “Green Initiatives in Rural Areas” (GIRA) did take part in the recent web talk with Prof. Ringel from the TEAM Europe, the speaker team of the European Commission.

Prof. Ringel accompanied us through the broad spectrum of the European Green Deal from its very beginning up to now. We delved into the different aspects this very broad policy area provides. One can say it will  be really one of the most ambitious European aims in politics of the foreseeable future.

In the discussion we also considered the aspects of what the rural areas and the local communities if not the single citizens can do within the framework of green policy. It was very important for the project group to get these additional information to delve deeper into the topic that we are working on.

Good to see that even in times of pandemic European cooperation is possible.
