This is the last working day of our EVS volunteers, Judit and Vladimir. It is almost unreal that one year had already passed since they came to Prague. Now you can read their thoughts about the end of their memorable year and how they would like to say goodbye to their EVS project.
The Right to Be(e) is YEE's grassroot campaign, created in 2012, and every year it strives to contribute to the well-being of bees throughout Europe.
This year, YEE is organising a competition that aims to inspire young people to organise local actions benefiting bees in urban areas. These actions will take place between April and May 2016.
In order to make things easier for interested individuals and organisations, we created guidelines that will help them carry out their desired activity.
Youth and Environment Europe had a chance to take part in one more event organised by the European Youth Foundation (EYF). In 2014 Mercedes Fioravanti attended the seminar (R)evolution which was organised for representatives of international organisations. The European Youth Foundation organises such educational meetings since 2013, so it already became a tradition.
This year Natalia Luchko (Main coordinator) attended the seminar (Re)mix which gathered together representatives from international and local organisations. The event took place on 1-4 March in European Youth Center (Strasbourg) and was attended by 40 participants.
YEE's blog "Office Cuisine" is an initiative aimed to encourage people to practise a healthy lifestyle. With this campaign, we would like to make our blog a source for our members on how to develop a sustainable working and living environment, focusing on eating habits.
Because of this, YEE is having a second recipe competition - this time for traditional spring vegetarian recipes. We invite you to share your vegetarian recipes and show what your organisation and countries have to offer. Your recipes will be published on our "Office Cuisine" blog and the most popular recipe on YEE's Facebook page will be rewarded.
On 5 - 8 March YEE Board and office met for the Physical Board Meeting. This time the meeting took place in Kapraluv Mlyn, the scout center located in beautitul nature close to the city of Brno. The Board and office all came together to discuss and plan the future projects and activities in the organisation.
On Saturday, we started with the opening which was followed by the Chairperson's and Project Officer's sessions. During the sessions we also discussed the vision and identity of YEE and upcoming projects of our Work plan. The first day of the meeting ended with funny teambuilding games.
