The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., is organising a screening of films in Ljubljana as part of the EU Youth Cinema: Green Deal (EUYC:GD 2024-2026).

EU Youth Cinema: Green Deal is an innovative project dedicated to a sustainable Europe, presenting the European Union’s green objectives in a cinematic context, contributing to the appreciation and understanding of the EU’s Green Deal, mainly among young viewers, and providing a platform for a multicultural approach to the Green Agenda. We have successfully implemented the project in the period 2022-2024, involving almost 5,000 young people in film events in seven Slovenian cities and thousands more in the streaming part of the programme. We are continuing the project in 2024-2026, with a further 23 screenings across Slovenia and online engagement through www.euyc.green.

EUYC:GD 2024-2026 will be actively co-created by the same four partners already behind the success of the previous edition 2022-2024 EUYC:GD: LET’S CEE Filmfestival Association and communication consultancy agency Chapter 4 from Austria, the Scientific Research Association for Arts, Cultural and Educational Programmes and Technology EPEKA from Slovenia and Go Green Skopje from North Macedonia. A new partner in the group is the Ukrainian NGO INNOVATION GENERATION, which will launch the Ukrainian edition of EUYC:GD.
