Are you pondering how to spend your summer vacation? Are you searching for a way how to have fun, learn new things, meet amazing young people from all around Europe, enjoy warm summer days and contribute to social Green change – all in the same time? Buckle up, we have a solution for you!
With great pleasure and excitement, the Federation of Young European Greens is announcing an open call for participants for the Summer Camp 2017 “Smash Borders, Build Solidarity”. The summer camp will be organized from 25.07. to 3.08.2017 in Werneuchen, Germany, in cooperation with Grüne Jugend (the German Young Greens).
The topic of the summer camp is migration and the integration of refugees, and is conceived as a continuation of FYEG’s previous actions regarding migration and our advocacy for a borderless Europe, such as last year’s #overthefortress. We want to ensure that migration policies respect Human Rights, generating practical and political solutions to the so-called refugee crisis and to counteract the far-right discourse on migration. All sessions will be conducted in English!
We are looking for 50 young people between 16-35, residing in one of the Council of Europe member states, Belarus or Kosovo, who are passionate and curious about migrants’ rights and human rights in general, Green politics and anti-discrimination policies.
The full cost of lodging (accommodation, food, and refreshments) during the seminar will be covered by the organisers. In exchange, we ask for a participation fee of 40 EUR for participants coming from non-EU countries and 60 EUR for participants coming from EU countries (and Norway, Switzerland, and Iceland)
Travel will be covered within reasonable limits and within Europe, with the condition to combine the most economic and environmentally friendly way (lowest price + travel time + CO2 emissions).
For those who want to experience the full summer adventure – and are willing to travel by hitchhiking and sleep in tents – we ensuring the additional 20 places for camping, for halved participation fee!
So how to go to this amazing event?
All you need to do is apply on an online form HERE before 30th May 2017 at midnight (CET).
You will be informed about the results of the selection by mid-June.
