CALL FOR PREPARATORY TEAM: SUMMER CAMP 2017

The Federation of Young European Greens is announcing an open call for members of the international preparatory team for the Summer Camp 2017 “Smash Borders, Build Solidarity”. The summer camp will be organized from 25.07. to 3.08.2017 in Germany, in cooperation with Grüne Jugend (the German Young Greens). The topic of the summer camp is migration and the integration of refugees, and is conceived as a continuation of FYEG’s previous actions regarding migration and our advocacy for a borderless Europe, such as last year’s #overthefortress. We want to ensure that migration policies respect Human Rights, generating practical and political solutions to the so-called refugee crisis and to counteract the far-right discourse on migration.

 

We are searching for young activists and youth workers who are passionate about migrants’ rights and the values of the Green movement. Do you want to help build a bigger movement? Do you agree that no one is illegal and that we are all born equal, regardless of our place of origin? And most of all, are you ready to organise a summer camp for 70 Young Greens? Then this is for you! 

 

DEADLINE for submitting online applications: 3rd May 2017 at midnight (CET).
