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. It will either take place online or in Brussels, depending on the evolution of the outbreak and of the travel restrictions in Europe. 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.

This page will be regularly updated with new information as soon as we have more clarity. Depending on the evolution of the pandemic, the Executive Committee will make the decision on whether the General Assembly will be organised online or in real life (IRL) latest by the closing of the registration of the delegates.

SELECTION OF DELEGATES

FYEG encourages you to start choosing your delegates, preparing them for GA already.

Please note that the delegates registered will attend the General Assembly whether it is organised online or IRL. Unless there is an unexpected and justifiable reason to it, the change of delegates will not be allowed after the registration deadline.

Please note that if the General Assembly is taking place physically, the Executive Committee may limit the physical presence of observers, however, remote participation will be allowed and facilitated.

Here is the registration form for the delegates. Please fill it in as soon as possible. Deadline for registering delegates and observers is 15 July, Wednesday 23:59 CET.

  • It's a good practice to have one experienced delegate (who has been to previous GAs or MO forum) and one less experienced delegate (to ensure transfer of knowledge).
  • It's encouraged to have at least half of your delegation who identifies as woman, trans or genderqueer.

 

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

The General Assembly will take place between August 27th and August 29th in Brussels.

Depending on the evolution of the pandemic, the Executive Committee may decide, no later than 6 weeks before the General Assembly, that the General Assembly will be organised online.

In case the General Assembly takes place in real life, in Brussels:

Delegates will be expected to arrive in Brussels anytime on Wednesday 26 August 2020, and depart anytime on Sunday 30 August. We will provide light dinner and accommodation on Wednesday 26 August in the evening, full lodging on 27, 28 and 29 August and breakfast on Sunday 30 August. People that are running for Executive Committee would be encouraged to leave on Sunday 30 August in the late afternoon, in order to have time for a short EC-EC transfer meeting on Sunday morning in case they are elected.

Remote participation of delegates and observers will be allowed.

In case the General Assembly takes place online:

Delegates will be likely to be asked to take part in additional online meetings in the last week of July, and in the week of 23 - 29 August 2020.

VERY IMPORTANT: FINANCIAL CONDITIONS!

If the General Assembly happens in real life in Brussels, travel costs and participation fee for the first delegate will be covered by FYEG. Participation fee for the second delegate is 50 euros if at least one delegate self-identifies as woman, trans or genderqueer (or 100 euros if no delegate identifies as woman, trans or genderqueer). We are happy to announce that this year we will be able to fully cover the travel costs of the second delegate.

Check the financial guidelines and conditions here. Further information on travel limits, reimbursement rules and participation fee will be shared by mid-July in case the General Assembly is to take place in real life. We ask you not to book any tickets until we know for sure whether the General Assembly can take place in real life.

If you still have any questions - write to us on office@fyeg.org and stefanie@fyeg.org immediately!
