YEE is happy to present a new publication "Guides for youth NGOs" which was created as a part of the project "Sustainability in NGOs". The main aim of the project was to explore the concept of a sustainability in youth organisations in order to improve the quality of their work.
This publication is a collection of five guides on specific topics: strategic planning, sustainable principles, sustainable project management, human resources, learning organisation.
Inclusion is one of the most prioritised topics of nowadays reality. How to involve youth, despite of their social, cultural, educational, geographical, economic or mental obstacles in environmental projects and give them same opportunities for learning? How to reach people from different backgrounds? How to make environmental projects more inclusive? In order to answer these questions, YEE organised the training course “YEE-nclude: inclusion in environmental youth projects”.
From 2 to 9 April, 28 participants from different countries explored the topic of inclusion. The training course took place in the environmental educational center “PROUD” in Horažďovice (Czech Republic).
Every year, YEE members gather for the Annual Meeting of the federation. In 2017 the meeting will take place in Finland. One of the most exciting things happening during the meeting is the acceptance of new members. And your organisation could be also one of them!
If your organisation is working with young people and for the protection of the environment, why not to apply for membership in Youth and Environment Europe?
You can apply for membership in YEE until 14th May 2017.
