Earth hour smallLast Saturday, March 28, YEE celebrated the Earth Hour with our friends from International Young Naturefriends (IYNF). During 60 minutes, Prague Castle and other emblematic buildings in the city went dark. We organised a night picnic in the famous Charles Bridge. We shared tea and vegan muffins and discussed about the Earth Hour with the passers-by.

The Earth Hour is a worldwide movement organised by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to raise awareness on climate change and energy consumption. 172 countries joined Earth Hour 2015. You can find out more about the movement in www.earthhour.org.

DSC02663On my last day of my EVS, on my walk in the farm I couldn't help but remember my first day in Toulcuv Dvur farm. The cherry trees in the farm had bloomed and the place looked like having a flower festival.

Roxana's goodbye letter

YEE is one of the participating partners in the project STEP - Societal and political engagement of young people in environmental issues, which is co-financed by the programme Horizon 2020 from the European Commission. The project will be developed from 1 June 2015 to 30 November 2017 and its main aim is to attract young European citizens to participate in decision-making procedures on environmental issues.

According to Eurobarometer, half of the young people tend to distrust the European Union. Traditional channels of representative democracy, such as voting at elections and joining political parties, stimulate only partially young people's interest in active participation.
