In the year of 30th YEE anniversary we wanted to promote the concept of volunteering for environment. With promotional ecological materials we aimed to reach more young people and to make the work of YEE more visible and known. This international project helped us develop youth participation within YEE member organizations both by involving participants of the international team working over the project and establishing stronger contact with member organizations by distributing the materials.


The main aims of the project were promoting youth participation in voluntary work for nature as well as celebrating the 30th anniversary of YEE.
To reach this aim we set the following objectives:

  • to spread and promote voluntary work, sustainable living, environmental protection, international cooperation and most importantly, youth participation
  • to create promotional ecological materials and spread them among YEE member organizations, various NGOs in Europe and also during local actions.
  • an international team of young people involved in various environmental NGOs, member organizations of YEE, will participate in the design of the materials and creating the message that will reflect the work of YEE and encourage people to take action and become active locally
  • One physical meeting is planned during which the team of six people will meet with a professional designer who will help to choose an attractive, economical design and implement the ideas in the best way.

Funder: The main funder of this project is the European Youth Foundation, The Council of Europe.

Council of Europe

The project is co-funded by the Youth in Action Programme
