February 8th, ARTS56, Brussels. It's almost 2 p.m. and our External Relations Officer arrives to the first European Environmental Bureau (EEB) Board Meeting in 2017, grabs some sandwiches ("meeting starts with a light lunch"), and joins the crowd.

Here we are, between many other representatives of many other organisations being many other members in the EEB Board.

It's the first time an EEB Board Meeting is led and held by two EEB presidents (since the last election in September 2016, where two presidents had been elected).

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.
