YEE is happy to share the news from the first activity of our long-term project “Active youth-better environment!” - the training course “Youth exploring participation”. The training course was organised on 17-23 March 2018 in ecological center Kapraluv Mlyn in the Czech Republic.

From the very beginning we dived deep into exploring the topic of youth participation - our group of participants was very motivated and enthusiastic to learn as much as possible. During the training course we explored the definitions of active citizenship, public and youth participation. We discussed traditional and innovative forms of participation, learned to make community mapping and also used group’s wisdom to discuss challenges that stop young people from participating. We also learned more about the importance of inclusion in youth projects and some practical tips on how to organise direct actions.

After six years of involvement in YEE, it is time for me to say goodbye.

It certainly has been an adventure! Working in a big network like YEE, with young people coming from so many different cultures and backgrounds and in an ever-changing environment is a challenge. But the rewards and gratifications made it definitely worth it! During my time in YEE I have met and worked with many people. I have learnt and been inspired by every one of you and even in difficult times, I could always feel that we were all driven by the same purpose and passion: the love for nature and the urge to protect it.

YEE is a great place to grow both as a person and as a professional. I am very grateful that I was offered the chance to be part of it, benefit from the network and give my contribution back to it. Now it is time to leave space for new and fresh ideas to come to YEE!

Hello everybody! My name is Masha and in the beginning of March I started to work in YEE as a Secretary General. I kicked off my activism in Georgian Young Greens and then was Executive Committee Member of Cooperation and Development Network Eastern Europe (CDN) for three years. I joined the Green movement back in Georgia mostly because I was concerned with the Climate Change, after some time I realized that many organisations in CDN actually work not only on the Environmental topics but also are concerned with human rights, especially the rights of the young people and many other topics I had interest in.
