YFoEE Training on Intersectionality, Commons and Green Deal for Europe
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.
