We are passionate about environmental and social justice, and believe that the voices of all young people should be heard. We are building an exciting movement – connecting like-minded young people across Europe to share knowledge, and motivate ourselves, and push for transformational change to fix the climate and environmental crises.
We work with young people on different issues/topics from climate and social justice fighting against systemic oppression to intersectional approaches for system change to campaigning and communications. Find our upcoming events here.
Young Friends of the Earth Europe believes in empowerment, youth participation and the power of action. We stand up for what we believe: just and sustainable solutions to global problems. We aren’t afraid to demand bold and radical changes for a future that is just.
Our actions, trainings and events motivate and inspire hundreds of young activists to take action – with the message of personal development and empowerment. Every voice counts, and Young Friends of the Earth Europe’s horizontal structure relies entirely on volunteers across Europe, who are involved in our campaigns from start to finish.
We always look for original and creative approaches to global problems, and we challenge policy makers with striving demands. We build the capacity of local and national groups to deliver effective political campaigns and challenge the current political and economic systems.
