Federation of Young European Greens (FYEG) General Assembly & 30th Anniversary, The Netherlands.

English

#FYEG30

#FYEG30 Utrecht hosted by DWARS

 

30 years ago, a group of young people from Europe got together and decided to join forces. Now, 30 years later, FYEG is a blossoming Federation, with 42 member organisations.

There are many stories about the history of FYEG. Were they hippies, camping (half) naked at a lake once a year? Or were there political aspirations from day one? Throughout this year, together with the Ecosprinter, we will shine a light on our history. We will explore the key moments of our movement. We will look at the common fights we have fought in Europe. And of course look at the ones we won. 

 

General Assembly + Spring Conference

Because of our 30th birthday we will organise a special General Assembly (9-11 May) and Spring Conference (12 May) this year. We will invite people that have played an important role in our movement and celebrate our common progress together. 

We will reflect on where we are now. What are the most important political forces we are facing and how much space does a progressive, ecological organisation get in an increasingly conservative 21st century. 

 

The Federation of Young European Greens warmly invite you to join our General Assembly + Spring Conference in Utrecht, Netherlands, from 9-12 of May.

In 2018, FYEG is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Europe is facing tumultuous times where the issues we value as a progressive, pro- European, tolerant organisation are increasingly less self-evident. We are therefore looking forward to celebrate our past achievements and look forward with a new, resonant vision for Europe. We therefore, couldn't be any happier to have chosen Dwars - Dutch Young Greens as our hosts.  

The GA is the most important decision making event that takes place each year. The political course of the federation and the leadership is confirmed according to a democratic procedure. Every year we combine our GA with a spring conference on different hot topics facing Green Youth in Europe. This year the spring conference will be extra special, as we are celebrating our 30th birthday!
