This semester has been incredibly busy for our organisation. The populist Orban government will not give us a chance to rest.
After we elected our new EC in March, the Hungarian government tried to close the Central Europen University (CEU). A huge crowd took to the streets of Budapest day by day, and finally the government retreated. It was our duty to participate in these demonstrations.
Also we attended the Global Greens’ and Global Young Greens’ Congress in Liverpool. It was really nice to see that green ideology can be found all over the planet. Continue reading
With the aim of raising youth awareness of acute ecological issues of the region, we conducted an International summer camp in the city of Kamyanets-Podilskiy in South-West Ukraine, bringing together socially active young people from Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus and Russia (RUMB).
Between the 25th June and 5th July, 46 children from different regions of the Republic of Moldova attended the “ENERGEL” summer camp. The Republican Youth Center “Gutta-Club”, which coordinated the event, with support from the “Energy and Biomass” project, managed to create a unique, eco-friendly atmosphere that would make the participants understand environmental problems and try to solve them in their daily lives. During these 10 days, children learned about recycling, energy, and social activity. They also had debates and campaigns that made them think up their own initiative and strive for a change.
Limity Jsme My is an open grassroots civic movement against coal mining and coal burning. Their first public event, dedicated to memory of the Northern Bohemia towns demolished for the coal mining, was held in February 2015. There were memorials held in fourteen different places in the country and the message was clear: We are against breaking of the brown coal mining limits and against further expansion of the coal industry. The same year, in June, we continued with the protests in more than twenty places which were joined by more than a thousand people. The protests were supported by our allies in Germany, Belgium, Finland and Brazil.
