Hey everybody! I’m excited to join the YFoEE’s #SYSTEM:RESET Project and training to help amplify underrepresented voices in the fight against climate change. The #SYSTEM:RESET online training sessions gave me tools to understand – and further communicate through activism – how including social intersections in democratizing our commons is essential to ensure an inclusive and just transition to a green way of life.
As a member of the Young Friends of the Earth Europe network for some time now, it has always been a pleasure to attend trainings and events with some amazing participants from the network. However, this year things were a bit different, as we couldn't see each other face-to-face and share an experience familiar to us.
We've said before that the best way to learn how to fix our food and farming system is to get your hands dirty.
But with coronavirus travel restrictions in place in Denmark, NOAH/Friends of the Earth Denmark set up the next best thing – interactive online farm visits where young people can learn about sustainable farming.
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!
If you want to learn how to fix our farming system, you need to get your hands dirty.
As part of our Growing Together project, NOAH/Friends of the Earth Denmark have been inviting young people and future young farmers to visit regenerative agriculture projects, where they have been learning about regeneration of soil and biodiversity on farmland.
So far, they have run four workshops at farms with 10-15 people attending each, depending on the appropriate Covid-19 restrictions.
At each one, young people learned:

Conversations in activist groups can often be tough - small disagreements can bubble up into conflicts, and derail what you're trying to achieve. How do you stop this happening?
During a recent workshop, YFoEE activists learned how to use nonviolent communication to mediate conflicts in groups.
Nonviolent communication is based on empathy and on listening and understanding other's arguments and points of view. This toolkit below explains how to use it for in your groups via tools and exercises.

Ungdom NOAH/Young Friends of the Earth Denmark continued their series of food sovereignty road trips with four Sustainable City Tours across the country.
How do we teach young adults about food sovereignty during the long Danish autumn and winter? How do we talk about food and supplies with short production chains when all food in winter is shipped in from far away?
Last summer, Young Friends of the Earth Europe, together with BUNDjugend (YFoE Germany) held a 9-day training event: 'Training for Trainers: Inclusive Climate Justice Work'.
We ran workshops on addressing racism, centering feminism, tackling power and recognising privilege - all designed to make our climate justice movement open and accessible to all so we can win.
