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.

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.

#NooneIsIllegal
#LeaveNooneBehindThe United Kingdom has left the European Union, but we will continue fighting for our social and environmental rights! Together with our Young Greens from England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland we talk about the factors that led to Brexit, the struggles young people face, and how to continue fighting for our rights both in the UK and in Europe. Together we shout Fuck Brexit!The legal definitions for terms like rape, sexual assault, and sexual abuse vary from state to state and mostly date back to the last century. Mostly, rape continues to be categorised according to the degree of physical violence used or threatened by the perpetrator, or a requirement to show that the victim was in a state of fear or helplessness and unable to defend herself or to formulate or express her will. In many countries, rape might be not considered as such, because the victim didn’t say no, or did not defend itself. This ruling leads to disastrous consequences and advantages of the rapists, in cases where the victim was not able to articulate their will, because e.g. falling into a shock state. Sexual consent is not existent, only because someone didn’t say no. Consent means actively saying yes or showing agreement otherwise.

It is necessary for European countries to tighten their laws to ensure sex without consent or with children is always punishable as rape. There already are countries that have tightened their rape laws during the late #MeToo -years, but the rest of the states are lacking behind and should be facing more severe pressure by civil society and feminist movements on the matter.
