In June 2015 YEE started its journey as a partner in the Horizon 2020 STEP project. The project, which officially ended in December 2017, brought many new experiences and insights to the network.

The overall objective of STEP was to develop and test an online platform for young people to take part in decision-making processes on environmental issues.

Initially YEE’s role focused on disseminating the e-platform among young people. But as the project developed, more and new opportunities for YEE to be involved and contribute to the project came up.

The European Youth Forum hosted 2017 2nd Council of Members (YFJ COMEM) from the 23rd -25th of November in Cascais, Portugal. The COMEM is one of two statutory meetings that take place annually, gathering Non-Governmental Youth Organisations and National Youth Councils from across Europe and beyond. Youth Environment Europe was represented by Niall Barrett, YEE`s External Relations Officer and Board Member.

Cascais is the European Youth Capital for 2018, and the official opening ceremony took place on the first evening of the conference. During this event, delegates explored the potential locations for the Youth Capital 2020, and also witnessed a fantastic choral performance from Cascais`s local Youth Choir. The city of Amiens, France was the lucky winners of the 2020 Youth Capital.
