Furthermore, findings from CIVIL’s field work, evaluations, analyses and recommendations on various categories in the country and in society, will also be part of the conference agenda.

This Conference has the goal of promoting green values that include and are in unity with topics related to social justice and antinationalism.

“It is essentially important to understand that when we talk about green values, this does not only imply environmental protection, but also protection of human rights and freedoms, social and environmental justice, economic and ecological well-being, equality and anti-discrimination. The Greens are coming everywhere around the world. North Macedonia has to join the global trends and processes” – says the organization team of the conference.

The organization, within its structure unites several organizational units, among which also Green CIVIL, formed in 2009. CIVIL has been existing since 1999. In its bylaw and program, the organization incorporates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, European and green values and practices them in all of its activities and projects.
