The Right to Be(e) - Planting Action 2015

Tuesday, 12 May 2015 12:58

Right to bee articleThe Right to Be(e) is YEE's grassroot campaign designed to help the survival of the bees. Ever since 2012, YEE invites people annually to plant bee-friendly flowers and help support these important insects. By bringing more attention to the disappearance of bees and the issue of their survival, we encourage people to take initiative and make their mark. The phrase "Thing globally, act locally" perfectly defines the ways in which every one of us can give his/ hers contribution.

This year, we scheduled our Planting Action for May 11-23 and we are urging our member organisations and friends to be a part of it. We encourage people from all over Europe to take initiative and contribute to a better habitat for the bees. Also, we are inviting people to document their well intended activities and then send to us so that we can publish it and inspire more individuals to join.

YEE celebrated Earth Day 2015

Friday, 24 April 2015 11:47

Earth Day 2015On Thursday, April 23, we at YEE along with our friends from International Young Naturefriends (IYNF) recognized this year's Earth Day by screening a documentary and having a bonfire. As might be expected, the documentary we screened, named "Cowspiracy", was related to raising environment awareness. Afterwards, we had a Q&A where we discussed about the points expressed by the movie.

The Earth Day itself, or April 22, is an annually and globally-celebrated day, on which events are held throughout the world so that people can show their support for environmental protection. It is celebrated in more than 192 countries each year and this year it marked its 45th anniversary. You can learn more about the initiative on earthday.org

There was a public plenary with the Employment Minister of the European Union and directors of big companies.


YEE took over and reanimates EUROTOPE platform

Thursday, 23 April 2015 10:51


The online platform http://eurotope.ning.com has been created by YEE and its member organisation NAJU from Germany in 2005 as a result after a Global Meeting of environmental activists. Back then, other social media websites were popular. This platform aimed at uniting the people and enabling them to continue exchange knowledge, share project ideas and discuss environmental topics.

This year YEE has overtaken the platform from NAJU, because it is closer to environmentalists from all over Europe than the German organisation. YEE now wants to reanimate the platform, improve the design, invite new members to join and reactivate the former members.
