The Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the EU will hopefully see Europe fully emerge from the Corona crisis with a strong sense of solidarity and building back better. Slovenia will inherit very significant legislative and policy responsibilities for its leadership, building on the current and earlier Portuguese and German Presidencies in the DE-PTSI Trio from July 2020 to December 2021.
The Ten Green Tests include both the policy dossiers coming from the EGD, wider EU policy and legal frameworks, the international dimension, and examples of where Slovenia leading by example could be inspirational to other countries. The Ten Green Tests present civil society’s vision as to what would constitute a needed success by the Slovenian Presidency of the EU in the context of the challenges the planet and society face.
We therefore propose the following Ten Green Tests and look forward to working with the Slovenian Presidency directly and via our members to support a successful Presidency that can take the EU several steps forward in the transition to living within the limits of our one planet.
