What We Do

FYEG is an umbrella organization for youth environmental and Green youth wing organizations across Europe. We arrange a wide array of events for capacity building, networking and political meetings.

FYEG facilitates youth exchanges, seminars, days of action, study sessions, camps, political debates, trainings, and more around Europe.  We collaborate with other organisations' initiatives e.g. ECIs (Right to Water & End Ecocide), days of action (anti-TTIP & anti-austerity), among others. FYEG also organises campaigns on essential political themes, such as on climate change with “#ItsOurFuckingFuture”,  “Keepitcool!” and “Cut emissions, not Jobs!” We also had a youth campaign in 2014 and an EU elections campaign. Another campaign was the “Unity in Diversity” campaign promoting the fundamental cultural values of the different European citizens. FYEG supports multiple European citizens’ initiatives such as the “Water is a human right” or “End Ecocide”.

A vast majority of our members are under 30 years of age and all our events are planned and run by young unpaid activists from all across Europe.

Youth Rebuilds a Brave New Europe

Work Plan 2021

As a result of COVID-19, the world is going through an unexpected social and economic crisis with long-term consequences for young people. In 2021, as we reimagine our societies after the COVID-19 crisis, we need young people to show decision-makers what better inclusion and participation look like.

The project plan involves a wide range of actions, both in digital form and IRL intending to pursue more inclusive and democratic interactions, processes and structures among youth-led groups and organisations. It will allow young activists from Young Greens and other progressive movements to learn about the different online and offline tools to advocate for better youth participation in civil society.

Just Transition? No Green Society Without Social Justice!

Work Plan 2020

The Young Greens strive to see a transition to the carbon neutral society while at the same time making sure that the structural obstacles for marginalised groups are being diminished. Just transition is not only an energy transition, but the transition to the democratic and inclusive society where everyone is fulfilling their rights. FYEG is organising a year long project in order to ensure young people’s say in the political processes leading to a carbon-neutral just society.

the project activities ranging from workshops to seminars, field trips, conferences etc. will also form a foundation for a joint vision and produce a concrete set of actions to enhance youth participation in important decisions on mobility, infrastructure and food production while reflecting on the different contexts of urban and rural living.

Reclaim Your Social Rights!

Work Plan 2019

A lot of young people across Europe live in precarious situations: job insecurity, inaccessible housing, unequal access to education and quality healthcare. There is a discrepancy between guaranteed social rights, and what is experienced by young people in reality.

FYEG organised a year-long project in order to empower young people to understand and gain access to social rights and increase their capacities to advocate for them through different international actions ranging from workshops, conferences and hackathons.

No Commons No Future!

Work Plan 2018

Today commoning is on the rise as it has become increasingly clear that “business as usual” is failing us, both economically, and ecologically. People want to create a better world and to write a new narrative for the future. As a result, individuals and organizations have begun to embrace the commons as a concept and practical approach for transcending the dominant paradigm of modern life, for solving pressing issues, and for creating a more life-giving future.

As the result of the project, we created a publication that offers a youth-friendly introduction to the commons, generates curiosity and perhaps motivates young people to get engaged in local and transnational struggles to protect our commons. It contains a list of sources for exploring commons further both in theory and its application in practice.

In 2020, FYEG supported its Member Organisations in implementing a Young Green Recovery in Europe through a series of decentralised actions, from webinars and online campaigns to protests.


The different activities were organised by Young Greens in Germany, Catalunya, Belgium (Wallonia and Flanders), France, Albania, Poland, Scotland, and Serbia.





In partnership with the Green European Foundation and with the financial support of the European Parliament to the Green European Foundation.This year marks the 5th anniversary of the #ParisAgreement. World leaders agreed on tackling the climate emergency and limit the rise of the global temperature to 1.5°🌡

But, weWe had our first ever Young Green #EconomicsWeek. A group of radical, young Green economists took over our Instagram page for a full week.
Each day we explored a new topic to understand how #economics can work for people and the planet 🌱

Why? The COVID-19 pandemic has caused huge job losses and insecurity, leaving many, especially young people, financially unstable❗️

People are unable to afford rent or healthcare. Meanwhile large corporations continue to make profit at the expense of our planet’s finite resources.

Time to rethink how we do economics! We were joined by Greens/EFA in the European Parliament MEP Rasmus Andresen and GroenLinks candidate for the parliamentary elections and policy expert at the Dutch Ministry of Finance, Senna Maatoug! 🔥

💶 Tune into our webinar to hear from greens from across Europe on how we can make Green Economics a reality.💜 Today is the International Day For the Elimination of #ViolenceAgainstWomen.

❗️Women’s rights are under attack all over the world. During the current situation of pandemic, women are still experiencing violence and huge backlash regarding their rights. 

‼️Women experience violence in all spheres of their lives. Women are not only being victims of physical, sexual and psychological violence for the fact of being women, but are also systematically ignored in the design of policies. 

✊ That is why the feminist revolution must change all spaces: from institutions to our private lives, we stand up for the equity of all genders.

📣 Today we ask politicians to ensure the rights of all women: trans women, cis wolen, intersex women, without compromises.

Violence against women must end NOW!
