The last Friday of January was in the spirit of climate change - YEE organised an event at art space Muddum in Prague as part of our Change Climate Change Campaign.

The event was opened with vegetarian snacks and a swap party, where people had the opportunity to exchange things between each other - leave what they do not need anymore or get some additions to their closets. Both vegetarian diet and swapping are gaining on popularity and are definitely a good way to reduce consumption and our impact on this world.

Bees play a huge role in the ecosystem – even if we are not always aware of it. Honey bees, for example, have been around for millions of years, collecting pollen and making honey. Moreover, bees pollinate about 1/3 of our food.

They give a lot to us, but what are we giving back?

Besides numerous festivities, Christmas markets and holiday preparations, the end of the year was also full of activities focused on future YEE projects.

Between the 20th and 23rd of December preparatory team gathered in Budapest to work on the upcoming study session “Exploring gender equality in environmental projects”. The meeting took place at the European Youth Centre Budapest.

YEE are happy to present our new publication - "Be(e) the change - Guide on campaigning"! This booklet was developed as a follow-up of the training course "Be(e) the change". It was created for all young environmental enthusiasts who want to organise a campaign, but feel that they would like to learn more about successful campaigning. Inside you will find chapters which explore different aspects of the campaign: definition of the campaign, planning a campaign strategy, fundraising, communication and evaluation.
