Welcome to the new issue of YEE e-Newsletter. August has been very busy month for YEE! We have a new board and we are saying goodbye to Coline and Cristian, our EVS volunteers for 2017-2018. Take a look at their articles and personal projects. You can also find an article from the training course “Green Voice of Youth in Media” and news from our members EDEN Center and ECO-UNESCO.

YEE is happy to share our new publication "Conversations with Young Czech Politicians on Youth Participation, Environment and Technology". The publication is created by Cristian Riva, YEE's 2017-2018 EVS Volunteer as a personal project within his EVS programme.  

This booklet is composed of different conversations on youth participation, environment and technology with Young Czech Politicians representing different parties and movements.

This work does not represent YEE's views, is a personal project of the EVS Volunteer. 

"Conversations with Young Czech Politicians on Youth Participation, Environment and Technology"

 

I grew up in Wales, around the west coast, seaside town of Aberystwyth, that is surrounded by luscious green hills and mountains. Due to my surroundings, I’ve always been aware of the importance of the environment and its protection. I studied Human Geography at University as I was interested in the relationship between humans, politics and the environment, and how these three things in turn affect each other.

I did not carry on working in this field and for the last 5 years I have been working in the world of Human Resources. Knowing that I have always wanted to work for the NGO and charity sector, I see this opportunity with YEE as a way for me to follow my passions. I believe that empowering young people to believe that change can start with them is really important and I am looking forward to learn how YEE engages young people in campaigns and how they work together with different organisations across Europe towards one goal.

Some children want to grow up to become a fireperson, cook, teacher or pilot. I had a slightly different ambition:

I wanted to become an environmental activist.

I dreamed of a future where I would chain myself to trees, sail in front of whale killing boats and never ever get a driver license.

YEE is happy to share our new publication "Edible Plants - Tools for Youth Workers". The publication is created by Coline Malot, YEE's 2017-2018 EVS Volunteer as a personal project within her EVS programme. 

This booklet will focus on tools and ideas for youth workers so they can provide environmental education for young adults, through foraging and cooking wild plants. The aim is to connect young adults with their direct environment and to develop environmentally-friendly behaviours. A broader aim is to solve environmental issues in a way that fosters individual and collective well-being and emancipation, taking into account other society issues like socio economic disparities or cultural differences.
