Dear Activists especially in the European South,


As you probably know, FYEG is putting up a series of seminars and events in order to address the situation in which young people find themselves today. The high numbers of Youth Unemployment creates a situation where the young generation seems to be left alone and without perspective. Against the agony, we will strive for exploring new ways organizing our social and economic live.

The seminar gives activist from Green youth organisations and movements in the south of Europe the possibility to propose policies and solutions to the current European crisis. There will be around 30 young participants from all over Europe and have the opportunity to exchange opinion with Green MEPs.

The Seminar will bring young people from across Europe together for an in-depth learning and training course. The programme will include a content part where speakers as well as you participants will share information
