Executive Committee

CO-SPOKESPEOPLE (2 Positions)

Eleanor Morrissey (Young Greens of England and Wales)

 Eleanor joined the Green Party of England and Wales in 2016 and became involved with FYEG in 2018 – as an intern, working group member, prep and coordination team member, and Executive Committee member during which she has worked on social rights, digital education, and global cooperation. Having lived in 5 different European countries, her passion for international politics stems from listening to different experiences and working towards common goals, and in her activism and work she hopes to make the EU bubble transparent while calling for global solidarity.

Driven by eco-socialism, feminism, and human rights – Eleanor pushes for activism online and in the streets. When she’s not dreaming up communication strategies for a green Europe, she’s drinking tea or binge-watching detective dramas.

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE (5 positions)

Anja Presnukhina (Vihreät nuoret)

 

Heyy!

I’m Anja, a 19 years old Theology student from Kirkkonummi, a small town in Southern Finland. My journey as an activist started officially in 2017 when I joined Greens of my town, but my first experience in activism was when we started a Russian-speaking activist youth cafe in 2015. It was fun and we did a lot to improve the position of Russian immigrant kids in our area. During these years I’ve written manifests, organized events and volunteered in many green projects in Finland. 

Last September I started as a Project Intern in the FYEG office and since then, the idea of applying to the EC has been quietly growing in my mind. I feel that I have seen how our organization works from the inside and I have a strong vision for what I want to do in FYEG, to make the most kick-ass youth organization even bigger, bolder and stronger!

Below you can see my CV, motivation letter and vision for the FYEG. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out via e-mail or DM me in Insta → @anja.presnukhina

Benedetta Scuderi (Giovani Europeisti Verdi)

Hi, I’m Benedetta! I’ve started my activism for the Green cause in Italy in 2019. Since then, I have been working with the Milan Greens and I co-founded the Italian Young Greens (Giovani Europeisti Verdi), being a member of the national EC and the international relations officer. I have dedicated my life to the connection between social and environmental issues, believing that a wider engagement of communities is the only way to evaluate and manage our impacts. After committing to it in my professional life as a sustainability and community engager consultant, I want to take this vision further and create a more inclusive way of doing politics. I have a master’s degree in law and one in energy and sustainability and I am currently finalising another MSc in public policy. My biggest passion is talking and discussing with people. My dream is to live in the ancient Athens’ polis and talk about politics all day long. However, I know that as a woman I wouldn’t have had any right back then, and after 3000 years we are still struggling. Therefore, my second biggest passion is to demolish patriarchy!

Clara Winkler (Grüne Jugend)

Hi, I am Clara a European feminist climate activist. I started my activism in 2016 and look back to several years of experience in the international work of Grüne Jugend, as co-spokesperson of local activist groups, being active in FYEG’s Feminist Network and as EC Member of FYEG since 2020. My superpower is creating feminist and inclusive structures in which I have a lot of experience and knowledge, which I am always happy to share. Currently, I am studying Law and Politics of International Security. Almost every minute of my studies and my free time, I am spending on learning and teaching about environmental protection, climate justice and gender equity. In the rest of my time, you can always find me outside, mostly climbing in the mountains, hiking or sleeping in a hammock.

The green movement is growing, and the climate crisis is not waiting. Therefore, as EC member I am working towards strengthening our voice and create the urgently needed change.
