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!
