General Assembly 2024

We’re excited to announce that General Assembly (GA) 2024 will be hosted by Belarusian Young Greens, and we invite you to join us in Vilnius, Lithuania on April 27-28.

Belarus has been grappling with an autocratic regime, marked by a relentless one-man rule. The situation has created an environment where it is virtually impossible for most of the young people, especially activists, to carry out their work, organise and even lead a normal life, pushing them to the brink and compelling them to seek refuge Especially since the events of 2020, marked by contested presidential elections, protests, violence against demonstrators, mass arrests, and other repressive measures, compelled numerous Belarusians, including members of Young Greens, to leave their homeland and seek asylum in neighbouring countries such as Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Georgia, etc. Moreover, Vilnius and Lithuania in general hold historical significance as a Belarusian hub and have become a haven for many Belarusian activists and now serves as the residence for a community of over 40,000 Belarusians who, through fortune, managed to escape imprisonment.

General Assembly is the highest decision-making body of CDN. GA consists of delegates from Member organisations and brings other friends from the Green European family to share, network and debate. GA elects Executive Committee, adopts activity and financial plan for the next year, amends documents, and makes other relevant decisions. This year, we will also discuss and adopt new Strategy for the upcoming four years.

See you soon in Vilnius!

Alternatively, the Kaunas International Airport (KUN) too is located close to Vilnius at 100 kilometres west of Vilnius, in a small town Karmėlava. With more low-cost carriers such as Wizz Air and Ryanair. To reach Vilnius from Kaunas International Airport, there are direct scheduled minibus rides to Vilnius railway station after each arriving flight.

Open call for Participants: Study Session “Green Perspectives on European Security”

Cooperation and Development Network Eastern Europe (CDN) and Federation of Young European Greens (FYEG) are announcing a call for participants for the Study Session “Green Perspectives on European Security”.

The event will take place during 23rd-28th October in the European Youth Center Budapest (EYCB), Hungary. Travel dates to and from Budapest are 22nd and 29th October.

With this activity, we aim to empower 35 young Europeans in accessing rights via human rights education, by providing participants with a holistic understanding of security not solely in terms of physical security (i.e. safety) but nutrition, housing, stability, etc.

The aim of the Study Session is to rethink and build a common understanding of security in the context of new global challenges and their intersection, guided by the values of democracy, the rule of law, self-determination, human rights and fundamental freedoms.
 We will achieve this through meeting the following objectives:

  1. Creating intercultural dialogue between youth from different European countries by providing a space to discuss the concept of security and ways to ensure it;

  2. Deepening the participants’ understanding of the current state of affairs of security in Europe;

  3. Analysing the concept of security at the intersection of diverse societal factors, exploring their interrelationships, and effects of the policy decisions on public security;

  4. Assessing the existing approaches to the concept of security and their strengths and weaknesses.

General Assembly 2023

The 14th General Assembly of Cooperation and Development Network Eastern Europe, took place 9-12 March in Warsaw, Poland, hosted by Ostra Zieleń (Polish Young Greens).

Throughout the four days delegates engaged in political and organisational debates, adopted reports & plans, voted for amendments and elected the new Executive Committee.

This year’s GA was exceptionally important for two reasons. We updated statutes with several amendments, including a major change of structure in membership – we opened the door for Eastern European organisations from the EU to be more involved members instead of partners. We also took a moment to reflect on our journey and celebrate CDN’s 20th anniversary with a lively panel discussion.

The following documents were adopted:

We also welcomed new Observer organisation – Neoi Prasinoi – Young Greens of Greece. While with updating statutes, Ostra Zieleń (Polish Young Greens) and Protests became member organisations.

And finally the General Assembly also elected the new Executive Committee.

Feminists in the Environmental Movement

Our planet is in danger, and those fighting for their homes daily are not heard! Local Reporters in 7 countries of Central and Eastern Europe have visited the areas harmed by climate change and harsh industries, and listened to the inspiring stories of young women living in rural areas. 

Through an ecofeminist lense, this publication explores the connection between feminism, youth, and the environmental struggles in Central and Eastern Europe. As part of the Feminists in the Environmental Movement project, we have explored these concepts within urban areas, but the struggle in rural and de-urbanised areas remained under-examined. While green successes and support often concentrate in urban centres, engaging and mobilising rural communities is crucial to achieve a socially just green transition.

This publication includes extensive research on the lives of young female activists in rural and de-urbanised areas, the stories of their struggles, victories and hopes for the future. It aims to raise voices of people who are usually unheard in the European landscape. While reading the different articles, you will explore the lives of women in rural areas, their perspectives and tools to cope with the local issues, and the multiple forms of oppression they face.

Publication
