Deadline for registration


Unionisation rates are falling in most European countries. This significant trend takes place against a background where we see mounting mobilisations of environmental NGOs and social forces advocating for more social justice. Could revitalisation of Trade Unions come from coalitions and alliances with environmental NGOs and social forces is an open question. Meanwhile, if we consider that Trade Unions, environmental NGOs, and social forces have common objectives for improving communities, they also have their specific goals and priorities.


  • Understanding the characteristics and priorities of environmental NGOs.
  • Defining strengths and weaknesses, goals, and opportunities from Trade Unions' environmental action.
  • Building shared goals and interests and drawing certain red lines between Trade Unions and environmental NGOs goals.

Target public

  • Trade Union officers and representatives responsible for recruitment.
  • Trade Union officers and representatives responsible for environment, energy, climate change, and sustainability.
  • Trade Union representatives at the company and sectoral level involved in health and safety and environmental policies.


English, Spanish, and other languages according to the registrations.
