Photo taken by European Youth ForumYEE was represented at the Council of Members of the European Youth Forum (YFJ) which took place on 27-28 April 2018 in Brussels, Belgium. Natalia Luchko from the Secretariat attended the event and is happy to report back from it.

We are happy to share good news from YEE office! We received the grant to host two long-term volunteers in YEE office in Prague - the project will start in September this year.

We would like to introduce to you our future volunteers - Femke and Eurgain. Read more about them below and find out about YEE volunteering project here.

Ketevan Kochladze, our Member Organisations Officer, will represent YEE at the European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) that will take place on 5 – 6 June in Tbilisi, Georgia. In this article she is telling us more about her experience at EuroDIG and youth participation and what will happen in June.

It is the first EuroDIG for which Youth And Environment Europe submitted issues for an upcoming European Dialogue on Internet Governance. As a network of youth environmental organisations in Europe, YEE finds the topic of youth participation as a fundamental part of its work and I explore it thanks to my organisation.

YEE Board and Secretariat, after 4 months, met again for another board meeting, this time in Kapraluv Mlyn eco-centre, near Brno (Czech Republic).

We used these 3 days to reflect on the hard work that has been done until now, and planned the next steps before the Annual Meeting. We also discussed organisational details related to YEE everyday work, and talked about YEE’s strategic plan and potential visions for the future.

Do you follow the work of YEE but did not become our member yet? Take this chance and join our network of environmental youth organisations from 25 countries. Every year representatives of YEE meet for the Annual Meeting and decide on what the network will work on in the upcoming year. This year the Annual Meeting will take place on 15-17 July in the Czech Republic. One of the things we will work on will be the acceptance of new members to your environmental family.

If your organisation works with young people and focuses on the topic of environment - join us! Get to know many youth organisations and people around Europe with similar interests, exchange information and ideas on common topics, take part in high-quality training courses, find reliable partners... these are just few of the many advantages that you can enjoy when being a member of YEE.
