General Assembly 2020

The Federation of Young European Greens warmly invites you to join our General Assembly between August 27th and 29th. Following the Covid-19 outbreak, FYEG EC and Member Organisations agreed to postpone the FYEG General Assembly to August 2020 and hold it online, with delegates and observers taking part remotely. 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.

Please check the Practical Info for Concept Note on how the General Assembly will take place online. If you have any questions don't hesitate to write to office@fyeg.org.
