FYEG Summer Conference 2019

 

 

FYEG is organising a Summer Conference in Istanbul, Turkey, on 16 and 17 August 2019. The topic of the Summer Conference is “Global Climate Emergency - The Role of European Citizens”. The aim of the conference is to understand what a climate crisis is, and how we can effectively respond to it with policies on European level. We will also discuss the role of Europe’s peripheries, such as Turkey, in combating climate change.

The Summer Conference is organised with the financial support of the Greens-EFA group in the European Parliament.
