In the beginning of July Luonto-Liitto, with support of YEE, organised the training course “International Environmental Action Days”. The training course took place in wonderful natural protected area Uutela in the beautiful house Meriharju in Helsinki, Finland.

For one week, from 8 to 14 July 2017, young people from different countries gathered together to train their skills in campaigning. Organisers prepared full and interesting programme: every day participants had a chance to meet with experts of different fields, strengthen new skills during practical workshops, try their creativity while making videos and as the culmination of the week, to work out the concept of the campaign on the topic they are concerned about.  

YEE is happy to invite all interested young people to apply for our new training course "International Environmental Action Days"!

The training course will take place on 6-13 November 2017 in Kapraluv Mlyn, Ochoz u Brna, Czech Republic. With this training course we would like to explore how young people can exercise active citizenship while developing ecotourism projects in their local communities. Please follow this link to read more about the project.

YEE left one more Annual Meeting behind with the member organisations, YEE secretariat and Executive Board members. The meeting provided an opportunity to review and to evaluate what YEE has done all year long and also discuss future plans for its next projects and activities.

 In 2017, the meeting took place from 14th to 16th July in Meriharju Nature House in Helsinki, Finland with 34 participants from over 15 different countries. They participated in a variety of sessions which included discussions, peer to peer communication, evaluations, energizers and presentations.

YEE is happy to present the booklet "Inclusion in environmental youth projects - guide for youth organisations". This publication was developed as a follow-up of the training course "YEE-nclude". It not only aims to help youth workers, youth and environmental organisations to understand the topic of inclusion better, but it also suggests some practical ideas for making projects and activities more inclusive. The booklet includes several chapters, starting from a theoretical approach and moving towards more practical sections, with tips, interviews and good practices.
