What We Stand For

The basis of the activities of FYEG is our political work on a European level, in a European political space. This is not limited to lobbying inside the European Parliament. No, FYEG is also involved on a street level, running campaigns together with its Member Organisations. At the same time it is not afraid of lifting topics and relevant questions from the local organisations, supporting them and spreading them throughout the network.

Once every year FYEG hosts a formal meeting, the General Assembly, where the MOs, through their delegates, decide on policy and strategy and elect an Executive Committee (EC). The EC board of 7 people is elected to serve for a year and EC members can serve 3 terms consecutively. The Executive Committee leads and coordinates activities of the Federation. There is no leadership hierarchy inside the EC, rather a flat structured and gender balanced committee. They are assisted by a full time paid Secretary General since 1999.

The opinions and statements of FYEG are based on the political platform, which is discussed and updated each year during our General Assembly.
