The Belgian Team of the European Citizen Initiative to End Ecocide in Europe cherish the opportunity to invite you to our conference ‘End Ecocide Together: From Theory to Practice’:
This conference will reflect about ecocide, the role of the European Citizens’ Initiative and the different stakeholders for sustainable development. We have invited local and international NGOs to present their work and to engage in a dialogue on how to best collaborate to end ecocide.
End Ecocide in Europe is a European Citizens’ Initiative bringing together citizens fighting for a sustainable future. In order to protect the ecosystems, we aim to make their destruction a crime: Ecocide. When one million EU citizens vote for our proposal within one year, it will have to be considered by the European Commission. It will be an excellent opportunity to meet those who are working hard to end ecocide and to learn more about the initiative and its implications on different sectors.
The first panel brings together speakers with experience on the ECI, Assya Kavrakova (European Civil Society House), Maria Maggie Dokupilova (Secretary General of FYEG), Pieter Jan Kerstens, team member of the Belgian Team and our spokesperson Valerie Cabanes. During the second panel Chris Halburd (representing ECCJ and ELS),Leida Rijnhout (ANPED) and Olga Rostkowa (President EMSA) are invited to present their particular role in the defence of nature and the potential common paths with the End Ecocide in Europe initiative. Also GoodPlanet will be participating with some photos of their activity. The conference will be closed by a musical concert with classic guitar by Giannis Efstathopoulos.
