The Greens, a driving force for political change in Germany

Can a socialist-green coalition win the German federal election in 2013? What to learn from the Greens participation to local goverments? How did they participate to launch the transition towards a Green economy? Cem Özdemir, co-president of the German Greens, will answer these questions during a conference organised by Etopia and Oikos. 

Date: 6th of June 2012, 20:00
Venue: Espace Magh, Rue du Poinçon 17, 1000 Bruxelles
Language: Translation in French, Dutch and English

In Germany, against the one-sided political mainstream, the Greens have backed further European integration and solidarity, a transition towards a Green economy, as well as the introduction of eurobonbs.

Having representatives in the 16 regional parliaments and several of their goverments, the German Greens have even seen a regional goverment president been elected in Bade-Württemberg for the first time in history.  

Is political change in Germany possible for 2013, with a socialist-green coalition winning against the convervative-liberal government? Is the emergence of the Pirate Party a threat to this alternative? What future for the German Greens? What to learn from the participation of the German Greens to regional governments? What about the future of the Green European family? These are some of the questions that Cem Özdemir, a German citizen coming from Turkey, and co-president of the most influential Green party in Europe, will answer.

A political event you cannot miss!
