The purpose of our The Right To Be(e) campaign is to encourage young people to take an active part in bee conservation. We are more than happy to say that this year YEE successfully completed the 5th edition of it’s bees-helping initiative.  

Summer is a travelling time! For everybody who enjoys making pictures and trying new meal while travelling, we are launching photo competition from Office Cuisine!

Office Cuisine is an initiative of YEE Secretariat, which aims to promote healthy eating habits among young people. We already organised recipe competitions last year and received a lot of interesting recipes. Inspired by the success of our recipe competitions in 2016, this summer we continue the initiative in a slightly different format: with a Photo Competition called “Traveling Food”!

From 19th to 26th May 2017, 25 young people from 5 countries (Albania, Armenia, Czech Republic, Germany and Kosovo) participated in the youth exchange “Postcards from nature”. The project was organised by EDEN Center, in collaboration with YEE, and took place in Peshkopia, Albania. During the youth exchange we shared and developed various creative tools for environmental education and learned how to raise environmental awareness through art.

YEE is happy to share with you our new publication on light pollution titled “Polluting Darkness”.

The publication was created by EVS volunteer Aljaž Malek as his personal project. In it you can find a short history of lighting, information on what light pollution is and perhaps most importantly, tips on how young people can address this phenomenon.

Feel free to download the publication from this link. To find out more about the publication’s background, read our EVS blog.

Organised by The European Commission's Directorate-General for Environment, EU Green Week carries out annually and aims to debate European environmental policy.
