Welcome to the new issue of the YEE Newsletter. September is the month of new beginnings, and that counts for us as well! We have new blood in the YEE Office, have to say goodbye to our most experienced colleague and we tried a new way of collecting free food. Furthermore, you can find out which member organisation was there from the very beginning of YEE and what's happening in two member organisations in Albania and Armenia.

It's time to say goodbye. After 10 years, just before my 35th birthday. Yes, me and YEE were 'born' the same year. I've made a long way in YEE – from EVS volunteer, to EVS coordinator, Main Coordinator and finally Consultant.

When I arrived to YEE office on the first day, when I saw this tiny office full of old furniture and I got a first task to make 3 magazines in 4 weeks about the topics I didn't know anything about, I could have never guessed that I would stay here so long. From that moment we did so many great things with so many great people. Projects that were bringing a change, that were important and made other people know more, act differently and change themselves.

Welcome to the new issue of YEE e-Newsletter. August has been very busy month for YEE! We have a new board and we are saying goodbye to Coline and Cristian, our EVS volunteers for 2017-2018. Take a look at their articles and personal projects. You can also find an article from the training course “Green Voice of Youth in Media” and news from our members EDEN Center and ECO-UNESCO.

YEE is happy to share our new publication "Conversations with Young Czech Politicians on Youth Participation, Environment and Technology". The publication is created by Cristian Riva, YEE's 2017-2018 EVS Volunteer as a personal project within his EVS programme.  

This booklet is composed of different conversations on youth participation, environment and technology with Young Czech Politicians representing different parties and movements.

This work does not represent YEE's views, is a personal project of the EVS Volunteer. 

"Conversations with Young Czech Politicians on Youth Participation, Environment and Technology"

 

I grew up in Wales, around the west coast, seaside town of Aberystwyth, that is surrounded by luscious green hills and mountains. Due to my surroundings, I’ve always been aware of the importance of the environment and its protection. I studied Human Geography at University as I was interested in the relationship between humans, politics and the environment, and how these three things in turn affect each other.

I did not carry on working in this field and for the last 5 years I have been working in the world of Human Resources. Knowing that I have always wanted to work for the NGO and charity sector, I see this opportunity with YEE as a way for me to follow my passions. I believe that empowering young people to believe that change can start with them is really important and I am looking forward to learn how YEE engages young people in campaigns and how they work together with different organisations across Europe towards one goal.
