General Assembly 2019

 Istanbul GA

The Federation of Young European Greens warmly invite you to join our General Assembly in Istanbul, Turkey, between August 14th and 18th.

This General Assembly will take place after a really intense year for FYEG, whose climax was our campaign for the European Elections. We have led the fight for a sustainable, social, welcoming and inclusive Europe. The European Elections allowed us to fight inside the European Union but Young Greens are also fighting hard outside of it. This General Assembly will therefore not only be the occasion to reflect on our campaign but also on how we can promote our ideas in all of Europe, even in difficult contexts. We are therefore happy to have chosen Genç Yeşiller - Young Greens of Turkey as out hosts.

The GA is the most important decision making event that takes place each year. It is the occasion to reflect on our work, elect our leadership and decide on our future plans. The GA will be combined with a summer conference on different issues Green Youth is curently facing in Europe.
