In collaboration with

Green European Journal

The Green European Journal is an online and print political ecology magazine dedicated to analysis, debate and new ideas. Since its foundation in 2012, its transnational approach has gone beyond daily news to read politics and society in Europe with a fresh lens. In times of social and ecological crisis, attacks on democracy, and rapid technological change, the Green European Journal helps ideas travel across cultural and political borders, building solidarity and understanding.

Published twice a year, print editions explore topics ranging from the current state of democracy to geopolitics in a warming world. The online journal publishes weekly in English, with selected translations offered in 28 languages and counting. The magazine collaborates with partners across Europe to connect new audiences and open up spaces for transnational debate. Audio versions of selected articles on the Green European Journal podcast: Green Wave.
