10th Central European Round Table (2014)

From  5th-7th December 2014,  the 10th Central European Round Table of Green Local Councilors took place in Vienna.

On the first day, public discussions around the topic “Sustainable Funding for Central and Eastern Europe” and Green reform proposals were held, with participation of Green MEPs from Austria, Hungary and Croatia, and also representatives of civil society.

On the second and third day, there was a “round-up” about the situation of Green local office holders from Czech Republic, Hungary and the countries of former Yugoslavia, and presentations of some “best practices” from “reed-green” Vienna.
