Congress in Liverpool: call for Prep-Team


The Steering Committee of GYG is planning a fourth congress in Liverpool, UK. This congress will take place simultaneously with the congress of the Global Greens, the European Green Party and the Green Party of England and Wales. This will become the biggest gathering of Greens ever taking place. We are happy to be part of it!

We are now looking for a Prep-Team to help us out in the organisation of the Congress. Are you interested? Find more info here

GYG Steering Committee welcomes Lara


Lara introduces herself to you!

"My name is Lara Render and I am a young German, currently doing a trinational Physics-Bachelor. 

This is why at the same time I am a Student of Universität des Saarlandes (Saarland University), Université du Luxembourg (Luxembourg University) and Université de Lorraine (University of Lorraine). I am passionate about exchanging ideas and believe in the power of every citizen which is why I like to take action. 

For five years I had been engaged with my school's fairtrade club and at the same time I enjoyed writing a lot which is why I became engaged in jounalism. 

Since three years now, I have been engaged with the Young Greens. After having done a two-weeks-internship with the German MEP (member of the european parliament) Sven Giegold, I joined my local Green Youth Party (Düsseldorfer Grüne Jugend). Since two years I work in the FYEG FOOD working group, since one year as a coordinator."

Is your organisation a member of GYG?


Since 2012, all our member organisations need to be registered as such. So far, not all member organisations from Asia-Pacific, Africa and America actually register. Please take a moment to check your organisation actually applied here:
 
If your organisation is not on the list, don't worry! Just ask the legal representative of your organisation to fill the form here.

The registration form for individual members is broken, we are trying to fix this asap!

Asia-Pacific 

Australian Greens are looking for volunteers!

On Election Day more that 380,000 Australians will be living, working or holidaying overseas. Can you help us reach them? 

The Australian Electoral Commission will have polling places in every major location across the world. In fact, at the last federal election overseas Australians were able to cast their vote at more than 100 overseas voting posts. 

If you're able to help coordinate or volunteer at a booth near you, can you let us know by signing up today? Register here

 

Europe


The Federation of Young European Greens held its annual General Assembly (GA) from the 26th to the 30th of May, in Prague, the Czech Republic. Around 100 representatives of FYEG’s Member Organisations and other Green activists gathered to debate the political situation in Europe and make plans for the upcoming year. The GA adopted policy papers on basic income, climate justice, refugees, and democratic developments in Central and Eastern Europe. Also, a new Executive Committee was elected. Read more here
