Inclusion is one of the most prioritised topics of nowadays reality. How to involve youth, despite of their social, cultural, educational, geographical, economic or mental obstacles in environmental projects and give them same opportunities for learning? How to reach people from different backgrounds? How to make environmental projects more inclusive? In order to answer these questions, YEE organised the training course “YEE-nclude: inclusion in environmental youth projects”.

From 2 to 9 April, 28 participants from different countries explored the topic of inclusion. The training course took place in the environmental educational center “PROUD” in Horažďovice (Czech Republic).

Every year, YEE members gather for the Annual Meeting of the federation. In 2017 the meeting will take place in Finland. One of the most exciting things happening during the meeting is the acceptance of new members. And your organisation could be also one of them!

If your organisation is working with young people and for the protection of the environment, why not to apply for membership in Youth and Environment Europe?

You can apply for membership in YEE until 14th May 2017.

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.
