Spring is here and bees are already up and about their business. As it happens, it is also the time when we start our The Right to Be(e) campaign.

The Right to Be(e) is YEE's grassroot campaign that has been going on since 2012. In the past few years we have organised numerous activities, from flower plantings and meetings with beekeepers to workshops and educational courses, all with the aim of improving the wellbeing of bees.

Three months went fast and in the middle of March, from 13th to 17th, YEE’s Board and Office met again for the third Physical Board meeting. This time we had it outside of Prague, in the small Czech town of Horažďovice. For 5 days Board and Office were hosted in the nice and cozy eco-center PROUD.  

On the first day, to set positive and productive mood for the next work days, we had several energizers and team building games.

The whole next day was spent with updates from the Board Officers and Secretariat. The team shared the latest news about external relations and projects of YEE, discussed membership issues, check the financial report from 2016, discussed the donation strategy and brainstormed about possible ways of promoting YEE through different channels.

Gender, environment, environmentalism, balance, equality, equity and mainstreaming. These were the keywords which marked the second week of March for YEE.

25 participants from 22 countries came to the European Youth Centre in Strasbourg, France, to explore gender equality in environmental projects. It all happened in the form of a study session organised by YEE and the Youth Department of the Council of Europe.

YEE invites all interested youth organisations to join our new project!
