The Working groups of the National Council of the green economy elaborate draft documents on specific issues and collect and evaluate – in cooperation with the supporting structure – comments and contributions made by stakeholders on the occasion of the national consultation events and elaborate strategic analysis and policy recommendations presented by the National Council to decision makers during the final event in Rimini.

The whole participatory process and the involvement of stakeholders occurs:

  • In the Working Groups made-up of representatives of enterprises and business associations of the green economy, experts and civil society.
  • Through Thematic National Assemblies opened to a broader participation and various National Meeting in preparation of the final event of the States General in Rimini.
  • Through the dialogue among Working groups and the Departments of the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Economic Development
  • By sending e-mails and requests for comments to targeted mailing lists, proposed by the National Council and Work Groups.
14 Thematic National Assemblies have been held involving participants from sectors considered crucial for the development of a green economy in Italy, energising meetings and exchanges of views to formulate proposals and fulfil ideas.
