Call for Prepteam: Social Europe Now!

 

The Federation of Young European Greens is announcing an open call for members of the international preparatory team for “Social Europe Now!”, an international activity that will take place from 24 - 27 April in Italy (exact location TBC). 

The four-days Unconference will be a host to a variety of workshops, designed on the principles of non-formal education with the aim to inspire young activists, civil society organisations, citizens’ movements, artists, and Young Greens to take action on reclaiming their social rights. The Unconference will be composed of 4 modules: 1. Future of Work 2. Housing 3. Education, and 4. Healthcare. The aims of the Unconference are to: 

  1. Explore social rights, the international mechanisms in place for their protection;
  2. Identify the struggles of young people regarding  the access to education, housing, healthcare and employment in different European contexts;
  3. Encourage young people to use mechanisms for social rights protection such as Collective Complaints and engage with associations and trade unions by showing positive examples;
  4. Build capacities of young people to advocate for social rights and develop their action plans by learning how one-issue organisations and international organisations across Europe can support each-other for the common cause.
