  • [01] GEWD Balkan Greens conf'

    A three-day conference of Green parties of the Balkans opens in Thessaloniki on Friday, organised by the European Green Party (EGP, the federation of Europe's green parties) in cooperation with the Greek Ecologists-Greens (Eco-Greens) party, in the framework of the Green East-West Dialogue (GEWD).

    The purpose of the conference is an exchange ov views and experiences from the activities of the ecological movements in Southeastern Europe and the development of Balkan cooperation on the crucial issue of climate change, on nuclear energy, cross-border waters, forest protection and other themes, and also political cooperation among the Greek parties of the region, removed from tensions and nationalism.

    Taking part in the conference will be the Greek parties from Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, FYROM, Moldova, Serbia, Slovenia, Turkey and the Ukraine, as well as specialised scientists and officials of the European Greens. The conference opens on Friday evening at the University of Macedonia, on the theme "Nuclear energy and oil and gas pipelines in the Balkans - What is the alternative energy policy?". The development of nuclear plants being advanced as a solution to the energy problem and global warming is, according to the Greens, a dangerous and dead-end paty, while the various energy pipelines in Greece and the Balkans entail incalculable hazards for the sensitive balance of the marine ecosystems, but also to tourism in the coastal countries and to public health. The goal of the Greens is to draft an alternative energy policy that is founded on the development of alternative energy sources, bio-climatic architecture, mass transports and an ecological way of life.
