What is the green response to the multifaceted crisis we are experiencing? What answers lay ahead in the coronavirus era? Are there alternatives to health and nutrition? To what degree are Democracy and citizens' rights threatened? How close to war does the mining competitions in the Eastern Mediterranean brings us? Can there be a green economy and social change in the coronavirus era? How do we ensure climate justice and protection of the planetary future? These questions are strongly highlighted in the current context. Society, environment and health in crisis. Do we have a choice?

Looking for answers to the abovementioned issues, the 10th GreenWave Festival, anniversary and online, organized by the Ecological Movement of Thessaloniki with the support of the Heinrich Boell Foundation Office Thessaloniki, invites you to a series of events-discussions, open to all and focusing on four axes.

You can join the discussion on zoom and facebook.
