Bottom up environmental cooperation – a driver for political integration?

Almedalen Baltic Sea Week

Grassroots are needed in terms of experience, knowledge and valuable points of view in the process finding solutions for future sustainable cooperation and living. What is then needed to facilitate an integration where the experiences of “close to the ground” and often “community based” initiatives- are given space in wider work for sustainability? And How can initiatives on the ground be empowered and encouraged to participate in wider collaboration with a diversity of actors within the field of environmental cooperation?
REALS project coordinator Emilia Rekestad takes part in a panel discussion on the possibilities and value of communiy based initiatives and their needs in facilitating a more “multi level” goverened collaboration.
