After each election, a new convocation of the informal Green Parliamentary Group (GPG) is formed in the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia.
At the beginning of November, a letter was sent to each MP with basic information about GPG and an invitation to join. More than thirty MPs responded positively to this invitation. Thus, on Monday, December 7th, 2020, the first meeting of the new convocation of the GPG was organized in the Green Hall of the National Assembly.
At the meeting, twenty-one members elected a coordination team to manage the activities of the GPG. The coordination team consists of MPs Dubravka Filipovski and Jasmina Karanac and MP Bratimir Vasiljevic. This was an opportunity for members to get to know each other as well as to get acquainted with the history of GPG and the results of previous work. Discussions were also initiated on future activities related to the adoption of the budget, organization of seminars, regional cooperation, promotion of GPG and cooperation with civil society. The meeting ended with the signing of the Charter of the Green Parliamentary Group.
With this meeting, the Green Parliamentary Group was re-formed.
The Office of the United Nations Development Program in Serbia (UNPD) supported the realization of this activity within the project “Capacity Development for Improved Implementation of Multilateral Environmental Agreements “, funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
