Regional European Ideas Lab - Copenhagen

Greens meet changemakers


Following the success of the second European Ideas Lab in Brussels, the Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament and the European Green Party, together with the Socialistisk Folkeparti, are proud to invite you to the next European Ideas Lab – taking place in Copenhagen from May 4th, 14.00 until May 5th at 18.00. Please mark this date in your calendars.

The European Ideas Lab in Denmark aims to connect changemakers from all Nordic countries (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Greenland, Faroe Island and Iceland) with members of the Greens in Europe and fellow activists.

Civil society organisations, everyday activists, citizens’ movements, artists, ecopreneurs and Green innovators, we come from different backgrounds but share the same desire to develop a green future for Europe.

While each of us has a different role to play, we want to create an atmosphere of mutual trust and collaboration to make the European Ideas Lab an important tool to achieve this in the future.

The European Ideas Lab Denmark will provide us with a space to, exchange ideas, define struggles, propose solutions, network and reflect on changes we want to bring about society.
