From July 31st to August 6th, 90 young European and Dutch participants from the wide environmental and social justice network will join together for a week of skill-sharing, campaign learning and movement building in the Netherlands. We will be joining forces in organising this event with Jongeren Milieu Actief (YFoE Netherlands).

The YFoEE Summer Camp, which is organised in a different European country each year, will be held in the North of the Netherlands this year. It will be a great opportunity for young people to get involved in climate justice activism, meet fellow activists from around Europe, and share about struggles and experiences from different regions. It will also be a great chance to learn more about Young Friends of the Earth and join their campaigns and projects.

This year summer camp will comprise of extensive training on issues of social justice, diversity and equity, effective organising and campaigning skill-shares and equipping youth from across Europe to organise for local environmental justice struggles. Furthermore, the event will engage in different themes that YFoEE working groups are currently campaigning on. We will also support front line communities in the Netherlands fighting against unsustainable gas extraction. There will be an active daily programme, including fun outdoor activities, open-spaces and participants’ led sessions, leaving free time for new ideas to emerge!

So join us in the Netherlands!
