In the framework of the SYSTEM:RESET project, Young Friends of the Earth Europe, invites European Youth to the online training programme on Intersectionality, Commons and Green Deal for Europe. After the cancellation of the physical training in Krk (Croatia), its online version will take place from 10th to 12th June 2020!
The training will take the form of a series of webinars (i.e. one to two hours each). The main objective is building platforms across Europe to bring young people from under-represented communities into multi-levelled decision-making and build strong, collective visions for a socially just and ecologically sound future.
Registrations are now opened until Tuesday 8th of June (1:00 pm - CEST)!
All sessions are scheduled on Central European Summer Time (CEST) - Sessions' timing is subject to adjustment. Participants will be notified in case of changes.
As the sessions will take place online, a larger number of participants will be accepted. However, in order to ensure interractions, limitation on the number of participants might apply - only for some sessions.
We live at a time of multi-layered environmental and social injustices, with the ongoing climate and ecological crisis disproportionately affecting the most marginalised communities. Yet these communities tend to be excluded from political decision-making, cut out of discussions about what the future of our societies will look like.
Young Friends of the Earth Europe is part of the pan-European SYSTEM:RESET project, which is building platforms across Europe to bring young people from under-represented communities into multi-levelled decision-making and build strong, collective visions for a socially just and ecologically sound future.
SYSTEM:RESET is led by Friends of the Earth groups in Ireland, Malta, Denmark, Estonia, North Macedonia, Cyprus, Spain, Croatia and Austria. It will empower 3,300 young people, at least 500 of whom are marginalised youth, to embark on collective visioning and joint planning, and have their demands amplified in national and European decision making processes. It will bring about increased awareness of these issues to 150,000 European citizens, and encourage the EU and the national policy makers to act on the demands and solutions proposed by young people in order to bring about the just, intersectional transformation of society we need by 2030.
