Call for Members of FYEG Strategic Planning Committee

The Federation of Young European Greens is announcing a call for Member Organisations' representatives in the Strategic Planning Committee!


What is the Strategic Planning Committee?

The SPC is the place for MO representatives to give their input throughout the year and prepare for better discussions and decisions on the GA and the Strategic Planning Meeting. It consists of subgroups, for which each MO can nominate one candidate. The subgroups meet online on a regular basis to discuss their topics and are involved in planning strategic discussions within the Federation. Each subgroup elects its own coordinator among themselves. The subgroups and their focus are:


  • Political - The Political Subgroup will focus on the image of our outreach as FYEG. Who are we and how do people perceive us? How do we communicate with the outside world? Is the 'brand' FYEG strong enough? What can we do better? While we are working towards the 2019 elections we want to know where we stand and continue developing ourselves.  Should we use different media in different ways? Is our narrative engaging enough? This group comments on all of these aspects and as such provides a platform for feedback and input on the way we are showing FYEG to the outside world. (political) communication done by EC and Office.


  • Structural - The Structural Subgroup critically reviews our IRP's (Internal Rules of Procedure) and Statutes and all official documents currently existing or to be created, such as guidelines for GA Presidencies or newcomers. Should the amendment/compromise sessions be regulated by the IRP’s? Should we have more/less EC members? How do we practically implement our STV voting combined with the gender quota? These are questions the Structural Subgroup concerns itself with. It is the place for people interested in rules and regulations and thinking about how changes in these rules impact on our organisation. The group plays a key role in advising both EC and MOs and aims to provide in-depth feedback on possible changes to how FYEG is structured.


  • Activity - The Activity Subgroup concerns itself with FYEG's educational, statutory and other activities. How do our activities serve our goals, and where can we improve? What kind of activities do we want to see more of? The group discusses things like the learning process around our activities, the follow-up on them, accessibility and in particular reviews FYEG's activity plan critically. With several exciting events coming up in 2018 and 2019, this group is the place to give your input on how we can make sure these events will be amazing!


  • Feminist Committee - The feminist committee is an exciting new structure of the SPC, led by FYEG gender officers, which will revolutionize our organization. It will have four main tasks: gender budgeting, gender monitoring of our activities, proposing amendments to our statutes and/or IRPs regarding these topics and, most importantly,  creating a plan to further equality and prevent discrimination in FYEG including a safe space policy and an anti sexual harassment procedure. Join us! 


How to nominate members?

Each Member Organisation of FYEG can nominate up to one member per subgroup (so a maximum total of four members). To nominate someone, please send a mail with an endorsement letter to office@fyeg.org and anna@fyeg.org and fill in this form by 12 September midnight CET. Please keep the focus of each subgroup and FYEG's diversity aspirations in mind when selecting relevant members to represent your MO.

Should there be any questions regarding this process or the SPC in general, please do not hesitate to contact Anna Gümplová (anna@fyeg.org), the SPC Coordinator in FYEG Executive Committee.
