General Assembly 2020

GA 2020 Banner

/!\ GA Suspended /!\ Following the Covid-19 outbreak and the implementation of movement restrictions in several European countries, FYEG and Grön Ungdom have agreed to suspend the organisation of the General Assembly. The General Assembly will not take place in Malmö in May 2020. The FYEG Executive Committee and office, in relation with Grön Ungdom and the Advisory Committee, are now looking into options to make sure the GA can be organised without putting anyone in dangerous situation or contributing to spreading the disease. Informations to come.

The different deadlines for applications or submiting documents are suspended until we can confirm a new date for the GA.

 

 

The Federation of Young European Greens warmly invite you to join our General Assembly in Malmö, Sweden between May 20th and 24th. In times of rising populism, closed borders and right-wing attacks, Malmö is a symbol of open-mindedness and diversity. With its progressive environmental policies and feminist attitude, Sweden continues to be one of the most forward-looking places in Europe. That is why we are happy to host the General Assembly together with Grön Ungdom, the Swedish Young Greens, in Scandinavia's most colourful city of Malmö!

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 spring conference on welcoming, inclusive and feminist Europe.

SELECTION OF DELEGATES

FYEG encourages you to start choosing your delegates, preparing them for GA and booking tickets to Malmö already.

Here is the registration form for the delegates. Please fill it in as soon as possible. Deadline for registering delegates and observers is Thursday 9 April 23:59 CET.

Please bear in mind that travel costs and participation fee for the first delegate are 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 cover the travel costs of the second delegate. Participation fee for observers is 300 euros. If you have a specific situation that prevents your MO or delegate from being able to pay the fee please contact our treasurer Stefanie (stefanie@fyeg.org)

Please take into account some of the good practices in choosing your delegates:

  • 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 a gender-balanced delegation.
  • It's recommended to book tickets as soon as possible.
