Do not touch! This macro will be adjusted by the organizers. The purpose is to list the members of your team. Please edit your profile to add your image if it does not show.


Present your work and what you have to offer. Please keep in mind that the theme of the EU Green week is "Zero Pollution" and that "4 per 1000" focusses on heathy and carbon-rich soils for climate and food security. Any topic that prevents and reduces air pollution and/or pollution in rural areas and/or contributes to improved soil health is therefore fine. Keep you presentation short and to the point.

Please write a summary of your presentation here. Keep it short to make sure people read it.

Please include your power point presentation and / other multimedia content just below this line.

2.Solidarity - Twin-Regions

The twin regions concept aims to optimize the use of resources to address the global climate crisis and other pressing issues by promoting international solidarity and massive, empowered, self-reliant and equitable citizen participation. A Twin-Region is a pair of communities that are complementary in terms of green house gas emissions and sequestration potential. They pool their recourses and collaborate in order to become carbon neutral and to solve other pressing environmental and societal issues, such as biodiversity loss and migration. Click here to read a one page outline.
