Call for Members of FYEG Working Groups

                  
The Federation of Young European Greens (FYEG) is announcing a call for members to join our five working groups!

The Working Groups of FYEG are a unique place where Young rGeen activists can discuss, debate, and develop new plans and politics together with FYEG. FYEG’s Working Groups will this year plan and carry out political campaigns as well as involved in educational projects and activities. This year, the General Assembly of FYEG has mandated 5 Working Groups to continue strengthening our narrative, our voice and our strategy in the following topics: Future of Europe, Migration, Climate, Food Systems and Animal Rights, Gender and Inclusion.

The General Assembly particularly stressed the importance of the three working groups on Future of Europe, Migration and Climate to strengthen FYEG’s campaigning activity this year. We therefore encourage our Member Organisations to closely follow up these topics with interested applicants from their membership.

Is it for me?

If you are interested in Young Green politics, want to engage in specific topics on  the international level, become active in FYEG and promote cooperation between green organisations - all while overcoming long distances - then this is your chance! There is no need to be an expert on the specific topic, but you should feel able and willing to participate in the WG throughout the year and give input from any related discussions taking place in your member organization (MO) or country.

How to apply to become a member of a WG

Fill in the form here by the 30th of July midnight CET!

If you have any further questions on the working groups’ activities or their way of work, you can write to our Working Groups coordinator pedja@fyeg.org

Future of Europe

Through the current multiple crises we need awareness, solutions and solidarity at a European level. Our aim is to open new debates and lines of action in order to strengthen the European project and enhance our future. In this working group our projects and debates will focus on a social Europe (trade and austerity) and democracy (Post-Brexit Europe). We attempt to connect Young Greens with their future, creating opinions and bonds between different backgrounds, countries and Member Organizations.

Migration

Recognizing the freedom of movement as a fundamental Human Right is one of the core principles FYEG is built upon. In this very challenging period for the continent and amid ongoing humanitarian crises, the Migration Working Group has been working for years on promoting such principles - through online advocacy, group reflections and concrete organisations of awareness-raising actions all over Europe.

Climate Change

With global climate change, humanity faces its most crucial challenge ever. Energy and climate policies are at the core of the green project because we stand in solidarity with the Global South, the first victim of the climate change, as well as with future generations. FYEG’s working group focuses on understanding the links between human behaviour and its consequences on the planet as well as promoting political solutions for a sustainable future.

Food Systems and Animal Rights

Did you know that to produce your morning coffee 140 litres of water have been used? How many thousands of miles has your food traveled before you were able to enjoy it on your plate and more importantly what does all this mean for the planet - and how can we change that? Be part of the food revolution and join our working group.

Gender and Inclusion

The gender working group aims to raise awareness among Young Green organizations and among the wider public on gender equality and LGBTQ+ rights, Improving the gender and LGBTQ+ policies in Young Green organizations as well as fighting against sexism, patriarchy and gender based violence.
FYEG stands for an open, intercultural and fair society where individuals are free to express themselves and pursue happiness. To do this, we want to empower traditionally excluded minorities and other discriminated against groups. This working group will discuss these issues and examine ways how we can make this a reality.
