1. Donate to GYG
Donating is the most valuable form of contribution
you can make at present. Financial contributions will help us cover travel costs of delegates from the Global South through individual grants
. We are in touch with marvellous activist
from some of the
of the world.
And we really wish to enable them to come to the congress. Read more about how travel grants are distributed here.
Donate via paypal here: http://globalyounggreens.org/donate-now or by a direct transfer to our bank account:
Global Young Greens
Bank: ING Belgium
2. Support a concrete organisation or individual
You wish to support a concrete organization or individual? We are happy to pair you up!
Through the buddy system
we link delegates and organisations from the Global North with their counterparts from the Global South. On a one for one
basis, organisations from the Global North try to raise funds to cover travel costs for delegates coming from Global South in their respective countries of origin. Be it through direct donations from your members, collecting and selling used stuff like books or clothes or organizing a concert of your local band – we leave that up to you!
The buddy system is a great and unique opportunity to get to know delegates from across the world and start making friendships even before the congress.

3. Ask your party to include young representatives in their delegation
Did you know that all countries can send a delegation of up to three individuals
to the Global Greens congress? Please ask your mother party
to consider including one young person in their delegation. This way, young representatives will get a chance to represent their organisation not only at the Global Young Greens congress, but also in the Global Greens or the European Green Party plenaries
. Let your party know that Mongolia, Australia or Japan already are including
young representatives in their delegation and why your party should not miss out too.
4. Spread the word
Tell your friends that #GYG17 is happening. If you already donated, let them know why you think young Green movement is worth their support. Forward
this newsletter or share
our posts on your or your organisation’s Facebook page or Twitter account. Spreading the word helps us raise awareness and gets us closer to potential donors, small or big. Check our Facebook and Twitter accounts here and here.
5. Share your tips and tricks with us
We have been in touch with a number of (Green) foundations from all around the world. Chances are, however, that we still may have overlooked some potential donors. Tips and tricks who to approach and how
are always welcome! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
